As an Africa regional advocacy organisation, WACI Health brings to this partnership over two decades of experience and expertise in civil society convening and organising for health advocacy and accountability. ‘We take up this role at a time when COVID-19 has raised the urgency for global and country leadership towards investments that will strengthen health systems to withstand any challenge including COVID-19. Through this partnership, we will especially support CSEM in outreach to country and regional civil society voices for stronger, inclusive and sustainable health systems for UHC’, Rosemary Mburu, Executive Director, WACI Health. Membership of the CSEM is open to all civil society representatives advancing health, financing and governance agendas that relate to achieving UHC.
