UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE, FOR ALL CHILDREN, EVERYWHERE
15TH NOVEMBER 2019
The RCPCH International Child Health Group 2019 Winter Meeting will be held on 15 November at the Met Hotel, Leeds, UK.
The theme this year is “Universal Health Coverage: for all children, everywhere”in line with the World Health Organization’s championing of this agenda to ensure that all individuals and communities receive the health services they need without suffering financial hardship.
Achieving UHC is one of the targets the nations of the worldset when adopting the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015. Countries that progress towards UHC will make progress towards the other health-related targets, and towards the other goals too. Good health allows children to learnand adults to earn, helps people escape from poverty, and provides the basis for long-term economic development.
At this year’s meeting we will hear from experts in policy, advocacy, research and financing, all aiming towards the goal of UHC for all children. Speakers include: Anshu Banerjee, Director of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health, World Health Organization, Genevaand Rob Yates, Head of the Centre on Global Health Security, Chatham House, London.We will welcome speakers from around the globe via teleconference and will be livestreaming the event to colleagues wherever they live and work.
