Country leaders across the world have identified universal health coverage (UHC) as a critical component for improved health outcomes as well as for their national economies. To continue the political momentum, the Government of Japan added UHC to the G20 Finance Ministers’ agenda. Ahead of the G20 Leaders’ Summit and the G20 Finance Ministers meeting, the World Bank released the G20 Financing Report to inform both agendas. UHC2030 Civil Society Engagement Mechanism (CSEM) and World Bank co-hosted a webinar to discuss the G20 UHC Financing Report, which examines the role of health financing systems in driving sustainable and equitable economic growth and accelerating global progress towards UHC.
