Campaign success: What’s next?

Campaign success: What’s next? - "Thanks to everyone who supported our Write Us In! campaign earlier this year, your action helped to secure inclusive language in the new health goal.

The new sustainable development goals have been surrounded by the rhetoric of “leave no-one behind”, but the draft text for the universal health coverage (UHC) target, fell short of being truly universal.

Our campaign called for world leaders to ensure that all groups, including LGBT people, were covered in the health target - and, along with the work of others, we succeeded. (...)

Although LGBT people are not explicitly mentioned we now have inclusive language secured that opens the space for civil society at national level to advocate for essential healthcare and rights of LGBT people. The final UHC target text reads:

“Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.
