In furtherance of the objective of putting Universal Health Coverage (UHC) on the political front burner ahead of the forthcoming 2023 general elections, the UHC 2023 Forum in collaboration with the Nigeria Governors’ Forum Secretariat and Chatham House UK has launched the citizen-led health agenda as a milestone towards engaging the leadership of political parties and flagbearers ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The citizen-led health agenda is aimed at shaping the health policy direction of the major political parties and their flagbearers. It articulates clear health goals based on national priorities and international benchmarks and identifies clear strategic policy shifts that should be prioritized by the political class toward setting the country on the trajectory of UHC. The health agenda was developed at a one-day participatory stakeholders’ workshop organized by the UHC 2023 Forum and attended by diverse stakeholders.
The citizen-led health agenda will be used in engaging the leadership of the leading political parties and their flagbearers ahead of the 2023 general elections to guide their health manifesto development.
“Development Governance International (DGI) Consult is a founding member of the UHC 2023 Forum which is a coalition of a wide array of stakeholders working towards raising the political prioritization of health in Nigeria ahead of the 2023 general elections”.
