Accelerating Progress on NCDs and Universal Health Coverage in the Americas and the Caribbean
The NCD Alliance, Healthy Latin America Coalition (CLAS) and Viatris co-hosted a multi-stakeholder regional dialogue for the Latin America and Caribbean region, providing a forum for representatives across the space to discuss progress towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC). The purpose of the dialogue is to break down silos between sectors and accelerate progress towards UHC, particularly in light of the financing gap on NCDs. The event is supported by Viatris - NCD Alliance’s key partner and sponsor.
The dialogue consisted of speakers and a panel discussion of representatives from governments, the Pan-American Health Organisation, civil society, and people living with NCDs. Moderated by Dr. Beatriz Champagne, Executive Director of the Healthy Latin America Coalition (CLAS) and member of the NCD Alliance Board, speakers will share their unique insights and then open discussion to participants from the region.
