Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has put emphasis on forging regional and global collaborations among countries to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC).

"I believe, collaboration among countries at regional and global levels will be fundamental to accelerate progress for a common goal to achieve Universal Health Coverage," she said on Monday.

Sheikh Hasina also said effective global partnership to formulate healthcare financing strategy for each country could be important to achieve UHC and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez also co-chaired the event with the theme "UHC as driver of equity, inclusive development and prosperity for all."

The panelists of the event were Michelle Bachelet, United Nations high commissioner for human rights; Maha Taysir Barakat, chair of the board of the RBM Partnership to End Malaria; Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International; and Jeffery Sachs, professor and director, Center for Sustainable Development, Colombia University.
