Following the launch of the Allies Improving PHC’s Open Letter during UNGA 77, more than 150 organizations from 50+ countries have signed on so far to urge leaders to prioritize primary health care as a 3-for-1 investment in universal health coverage, health security and better health and well-being.

The Allies will be collecting as many signatures as possible through 12 December, Universal Health Coverage Day, when the letter will be delivered to key leaders and decisionmakers in the lead up to the two 2023 High-Level Meetings on UHC and pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response, respectively; as well as the midpoint of the Sustainable Development Goals. Every signature counts.
