Highlighting Contrasts Between 2019 & 2023 UHC Political Declarations

Last updated on: 27 February 2024

In this statement, drafted by INPUD, the Love Alliance, STOPAIDS, GNP+, WACI Health, Frontline AIDS and Aidsfonds, we highlight the contrasts between the 2019 and 2023 Political Declarations on Universal Health Coverage. While we see several improvements when it comes to mentions of prioritising person-centred care, the need for better coordination in health-related processes, increased references to HIV, and an increased recognition of the importance of communities, there are disheartening elements to flag.


It’s disheartening to note that the 2023 declaration exhibited stagnation in terms of human rights, notably by failing to explicitly mention criminalised and marginalised communities.
