The participating organisations released the following statement and urged others to sign on to show their support:
“We, representatives from international development agencies, partnerships and global and local civil society organisations, gathered to work on improving harmonisation and alignment of advocacy around health and community systems strengthening for universal health coverage (UHC) and the Sustainable Development health targets at the country levels.
Together, we call for urgent action towards better harmonisation and alignment of advocacy and agree to develop a plan of action to be implemented at the country, regional and global levels.
We commit to meet again during the upcoming 2016 World Health Assembly to assess progress on the plan of action and continue to move forward on this, our common agenda.
We invite all agencies and organizations to join with us in this ambitious undertaking.”
