The Civil Society Engagement Mechanism for UHC2030 (CSEM) is the civil society constituent of UHC2030 (formerly the International Health Partnership, IHP+), the global movement to build stronger health systems for universal health coverage (UHC). The CSEM raises civil society voices to ensure that UHC policies are inclusive and equitable, and that systematic attention is given to the most marginalized and vulnerable populations so that no one is left behind.
The CSEM Secretariat is co-hosted by Management Sciences for Health and WACI Health.
We aim to do this through:
- Influencing policy design and implementation
- Lobbying for participatory and inclusive policy development and implementation processes
- Strengthening citizen-led social accountability mechanisms
- Promoting coordination between civil society organization (CSO) platforms and networks working on health-related issues at the national, regional and global levels
- Enabling civil society to have a voice in the UHC2030 movement
