Aligning with the Regional Hub’s Theme:

The IWG Eastern Mediterranean Regional Hub’s Regional Flagship Initiative focuses on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) as a key priority. UHC is defined as providing all individuals with access to quality health services when and where they need them, without facing financial hardship. This aligns with the vision outlined in the Alma-Ata Declaration of 1978, which recognized health as a fundamental human right and emphasized the importance of primary healthcare in achieving health for all.
