Health for Humanity

The Health for Humanity virtual event facilitated a crucial conversation about eye health care as an integral part of universal health coverage, and inspired attendees to take action to achieve good health and well-being for all. Thanks to our event sponsors, this free, one-hour virtual event provided unique perspectives, expert analyses, and front-line examples of why now, more than ever, the world needs universal health coverage. Drawing from their diverse experience, our panel of health experts explore the political, social and economic factors around achieving UHC.
