A Multi-Sectoral Path to UHC
The Access Challenge and Harvard Global Health Institute. launched the One by One UHC Report, 'Africa Leads the Way: Harnessing Multi-Sectoral Collaboration to Achieve UHC' on June 5, 2020 at the Webinar "Finding Opportunity in Crisis: How to Use COVID-19 to Build Better UHC Systems in Africa.'
This report is an outcome of One by One UHC Conference 2019, which occurred alongside the 74th UN General Assembly. This report discusses the relationship between human health, climate change, and environmental resources such as water, food, and air, and their importance in achieving UHC in Africa. By focusing on access to nutritious food, clean water, and air as the building blocks of a healthy society, the report examines the relationship between diseases prevalent in Africa and these fundamental underlying causes. The Report also shows how if left unmitigated, climate change will undermine these critical multi-sectoral efforts to improve health.
