The Universal Health Coverage- UHC In Africa

UHC In Africa

Awareness of the importance of domestic health budgets in Africa can be traced back to the Abuja Declaration in 2001. There are several important policy frameworks and regional initiatives in the African region. These include:

Abuja Declaration (2001): In 2001, African Union (AU) countries pledged to allocate at least 15% of their annual budget to the health sector. The Abuja +12 Declaration in 2013 saw governments renew their pledges to end the epidemics of HIV, TB and malaria by 2030. In 2015, the Abuja Call and AU Roadmap were reviewed and extended to 2030.

AU Catalytic Framework to end AIDS, TB and Malaria in Africa by 2030 (2016): The objective of the Catalytic Framework is to intensify the implementation of the Abuja+12 commitments by building Africa-wide consensus on the key strategic actions within the context of the existing targets and milestones.

African Health Strategy (2016-2030): A framework providing strategic direction to Africa’s Member States in their efforts to strengthen health systems performance, increase investments in health, improve equity and address social determinants of health to reduce priority diseases burden. A set of objectives is linked to each disease and targets set to eliminate them by 2030.
