Achieving Global Goal 3 by 2030, including universal health coverage (UHC), is a priority for the UK. DFID is coordinating across the UK Government and with other donors on preparations for the High-Level Meeting on UHC. We are working to ensure that UHC, and the steps to achieve it, are discussed in international forums such as the G7 and G20 ahead of the High-Level Meeting.
