According to WHO estimates, half of the world’s population lacks access to essential health services. Over 100 million people each year fall into extreme poverty because they have to pay out of pocket for basic healthcare and treatment services. In 2015, political leaders committed to Universal Health Coverage (UHC), an essential health package for all. If implemented responsible and effectively, UHC can massively reduce global burdens of HIV, TB, malaria, viral hepatitis, waterborne diseases, neglected tropical diseases and other infectious diseases.

However, governments are off track in meeting their UHC commitments. On current trends up to 5 billion people will still lack access to basic health services by 2030. In today’s digital age adopting and scaling technology and innovation are critical to to address traditional and emerging challenges in scaling healthcare. It offers unprecedented opportunities for using data to identify and address healthcare needs, including among the most marginalised and neglected populations.

UNITE – The Global Parliamentarians Network to End Infectious Diseases, UNAIDS and GHA – German Health Alliance are jointly stepping forward to position the role of sustainable partnerships and in effectively achieving the 2030 SDGs through digital innovation at the heart of the global health policy agenda, aiming to foster discussions and to generate related key recommendations.
