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, all involved assistant directors-general and executive directors, and the directors for programme management of the six WHO regional offices.
The main contribution of the Steering Committee to the UHC Partnership is to improve alignment and coherence of WHO in the field and ensure strong support from the senior management for the implementation of the UHC Partnership in Regions and Countries, through a bottom-up approach.
