The drive towards universal health coverage (UHC) is an exciting move towards realising the right to health for all – for more information on UHC see our Health for All page. At GNP+, we believe it is essential that people living with HIV are meaningfully involved in conversations around UHC. We want to ensure that networks of people living with HIV are knowledgeable about UHC and equipped with the resources and tools that they need to articulate their position and priorities and engage in global and national policy spaces.
What are we doing?
Working with national and regional networks (in Ukraine, Indonesia and West Africa) and globally we are using data gathered through the People Living with HIV Stigma Index to inform and support our advocacy on UHC.
We are holding a series of “Boot Camps” for a core group of activists to build their knowledge and capabilities around UHC. The Boot Camps will start at global level and be rolled out regionally and nationally to ensure that people living with HIV are included in health funding discussions.
We are putting together an information bank of community-created and community-led solutions to the current gaps in UHC for key and affected communities. These strategies will be shared to support collective learning and inspiration.
