About the UHC Partnership Steering Committee


In 2019, WHO established an internal High-level Steering Committee under the guidance of WHO Deputy Director-General Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, mirroring the strong political support demonstrated by world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly, which endorsed the Political Declaration on UHC.


This Committee comprises the Deputy Director-General, the Executive Director of the UHC Life Course Division, as well as all involved assistant directors-general and executive directors, as well as the director for programme and management of the six WHO regional offices.


The main contribution of the Steering Committee to the UHC Partnership is improving alignment and coherence of WHO in the field and ensuring strong support from the senior management for implementation of managerial processes to ensure fast recruitment procedures and quick availability of funds at country and regional levels.
