Inter-Ministerial Panel

At the sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD-VI) Summit held in Nairobi, Kenya in August 2016, African Heads of State signed the Universal Health Coverage in Africa: A Framework for Action. The framework represents a powerful commitment to multi-sector collaboration to achieve UHC. However, leaders across Africa must turn this commitment into action. The Ministerial Panel will bring together Ministers of Health from countries across Africa to take stock of progress since TICAD VI and map a vision for what it will take to achieve UHC targets in their countries.
