On Saturday 3 December 2016, patients from across the world will come together to celebrate Patient Solidarity Day. This is a unique opportunity for patients, patients’ groups and others to stand together in our claim that patient-centred Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is essential and that no-one can be left behind.
Patient-centred UHC means that everyone across the world people receive the health services they need without suffering financial hardship when accessing them. The full spectrum of essential, safe and quality health services should be covered including health promotion, prevention and treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care.
IAPO (International Alliance of Patients' Organizations) is a unique global alliance promoting patient-centred healthcare worldwide. With around 280 members, spanning 70 countries and 50 conditions, our vision is to see patients at the centre of healthcare . We are committed to ensuring that patients play an active role in decision-making processes.
