The President of the General Assembly will convene a one-day high-level meeting on universal health coverage at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on 23 September 2019, a day before the start of the general debate of the Assembly at its seventy-fourth session.

The Modalities Resolution for the UN HLM on UHC outlines the agenda, which includes:

  • An opening segment from 9:00 to 9:30, featuring statements by the 74th President of the General Assembly, the Secretary-General, the Director General of the World Health Organization, the President of the World Bank Group, and an eminent high-level champion of UHC;
  • A plenary segment from 10:30 to 13:00 and 15:00 to 17:30, where Heads of State will deliver their statements;
  • Two multi-stakeholder panels from 11:00 to 13:00 and 15:00 to 17:00, held in parallel to the plenary segment;
  • closing segment from 17:30 to 18:00.

Each of the two multi-stakeholder panels will be co-chaired by two representatives, one from a developed country and one from a developing country, to be appointed by the President of the General Assembly from among the Heads of State or Government attending the high-level meeting, in consultation with Member States, taking into account gender equity, level of development and geographical representation.
