Political Envoys

A One By One Political Envoy is the very cornerstone of the campaign’s success in driving policy change and inspiring political action amongst the top-most officials to achieve universal health coverage in Africa. The campaign’s carefully selected envoys ...

Former Tanzanian President, H.E. Jakaya M. Kikwete, is both a founder and a political envoy of the One by One: Target 2030 campaign. With vast years of experience as an advocate for universal access to health, President Kikwete provides crucial direction for the campaign, serves as a role model for other heads of state across Africa to step up and commit to UHC in their policy agendas.

Prior to his presidency, President Kikwete held key Ministerial positions in the Tanzanian Government including Foreign Affairs, Finance, and Energy & Minerals. His continued championing of a Tanzanian development agenda focusing on public health, women and children positions him at the forefront of high-level political leadership for expansive and inclusive health.

President Kikwete has served as the Co-Chair of the UN Commission of Information and Accountability on Women’s and Children’s Health, Chairperson of the United Nations High Level Panel on the Global Response to Health Crisis, and Chairperson of the African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA).

Upon his retirement, President Kikwete assumed leadership roles in different capacities across various cross-cutting issues thereby embodying a true One by One leader and envoy for comprehensive UHC across the continent. 

President Kikwete plays a strong role in enhancing relations between the AU and the UN, EU and International Community at large. 

Other leadership roles include: 

Co-Chair of the UN High Level Advisory Group on Every Woman Every Child; Member of the UN Lead Group on Scaling Up Nutrition, the Global Ambassador for Immunization, Member of the World Malaria Council; Commissioner of the International Education Commission for Financing Global Education Opportunity; Co-Chair of the World Refugee Council; African Union High Level Representative on Libya; and Chairman of the Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete Foundation.

Her Excellency Amira El Fadil illustrates the power of high-level political will and its ability to drive lasting change for UHC in Africa. As the Commissioner of Social Affairs at the African Union, H.E. Amira El Fadil actively engages with top political figures and mobilizes them in areas including women’s rights and empowerment, children’s rights and welfare, health, youth empowerment, education and poverty eradication. H.E. Amira is an important leader for UHC and calls upon all AU Member states to adopt universal health coverage across the African continent and to build the resilience of health systems. Currently, H.E. Amira ardently advocates for the ratification of the African Medicines Agency (AMA) to ensure the harmonization of medical products across Africa.
