Celebrating Ten Years of Joint Learning Towards UHC

December 10, 2020 - 7:30am - 9:00am

While the challenges health systems have faced vary in their prominence over time, from scarce resources for health to pandemics such as COVID-19, this Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Day we will celebrate the accomplishments and progress made by the Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) over the past ten years and look forward to the next decade of joint learning.

Join policymakers and practitioners from JLN member countries and other JLN champions and supporters as we retrace the evolution and growth of the network, the unique features and feats that have made the JLN what it is today, and the progress JLN members have made toward stronger health systems and UHC.
