UK Ministers are looking forward to attending the 2023 UN General Assembly in September and will ensure high representation at the three global health high-level meetings (HLM) on universal health coverage, TB and pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.

Universal health coverage is a priority for the UK and we are with partners, working to use the high-level meeting as an important opportunity to revitalise political commitment to and drive stronger action toward achieving universal health coverage by 2030. Exact UK Ministerial representation across the three HLMs will be confirmed in due course.
