In recognition of Universal Health Coverage Day, Management Sciences for Health is convening a group of policymakers and practitioners to examine person-centered primary health care as the foundation of achieving UHC and Sustainable Development Goal 3. Half-way into the lifespan of the SDGs, what needs to be done to ensure that communities are involved in the design of their primary health care systems? What are global best practices for PHC and what are we learning from them? How can we ensure these experiences are brought to bear as we approach 2030?
