Adapted from UHC Campaign Toolkit uhcday.org/toolkit

On 23 September, all @UN Member States came together to sign the most ambitious & comprehensive political declaration on health in history. This #UHCDay, let’s call on our leaders to #KeepThePromise. #HealthForAll

Every country is on the record committing to #HealthForAll. We have only one message for them: #KeepThePromise. #UHCDay UHCDay.org  #HealthForAll

We have made the case for #UHC ethically, economically and politically. Now is the time to deliver on that promise. #UHCDay #HealthForAll #KeepThePromise

#UHC is a nation’s promise to its people. It’s time that leaders kept their word. #UHCDay #KeepThePromise UHCDay.org

No one, anywhere, should go bankrupt to get the health services they need. #HealthForAll #UHCDay #KeepThePromise

210M people worldwide must spend >25% of their household budget to get the health services they need. No one should have to choose between health & other necessities. #HealthForAll #KeepThePromise.

#UHCDay Reminder: We can’t #KeepThePromise of #HealthForAll w/out addressing social, economic & environmental determinants of health.

Health is a human right that too many people are waiting for. When will leaders keep the promise of #HealthForAll? #UHCDay #KeepThePromise

This #UHCDay, we have one message: #KeepThePromise of strong, equitable health systems that #LeaveNoOneBehind. #HealthForAll

No matter your gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, age, ability or citizenship, #HealthForAll means all people can get the health services they need, w/out discrimination or financial hardship. #HealthForAll #KeepThePromise

To secure #HealthForAll, we must build accountable & transparent institutions that can fight corruption and ensure social justice. #UHCDay #KeepThePromise

To #KeepThePromise of #HealthForAll, legislators must promote the responsible use of emerging technologies. This means stronger legislations that prioritise public safety & privacy over profit. #UHCDay

Uphold Quality of Care

#PrimaryHealthCare can provide people with the right care, at the right time, right in their communities – and it’s one of the best ways to help people lead a healthy life. #KeepThePromise #HealthForAll

How do we achieve #HealthForAll? Stop chronic under-investment in the health workforce and employ 9 million additional nurses and midwives by 2030. #UHCDay #KeepThePromise

Investing in a population’s health pays dividends to entire countries. #HealthForAll is not only the right choice, but the smart choice. #UHCDay #KeepThePromise

Investing in #HealthForAll means investing in the capacity of policymakers, researchers, practitioners & health workers: the backbones of strong health systems. #KeepThePromise #UHCDay

This September, @UN Member States committed to providing 1 billion more people with quality, affordable health services by 2023. To achieve this, we must have meaningful participation and leadership from all stakeholders. #HealthForAll #UHCDay #KeepThePromise

Achieving #HealthForAll is only possible when the right stakeholders are engaged. This means leveraging the strengths of civil society, the private sector, academia, local communities & health practitioners. #UHCDay #KeepThePromise

According to @WHO, 70% of the health and social workforce is comprised of women often in unpaid or underpaid positions. This is unacceptable. On #UHCDay, we demand investments in gender parity on the road to #HealthForAll. #KeepThePromise

On #UHCDay, we demand that world leaders #KeepThePromise to promote #genderequality when designing, implementing and monitoring health policies. This means taking into account the specific needs and rights of women and girls.
