The Health for All movement — in which health information plays a vital role — is at a crossroads. In the last year, more world leaders than ever have echoed our calls to action. At the same time, historic commitments are being tested in practice, and it’s up to all of us to band together and ensure that progress doesn’t fall short for those who need it most.

Fortunately, this movement is unstoppable for a reason: We rejected complacency the moment we committed to health for all. Ambition and action are in our DNA.

We hope the 12.12.16 Starter Kit will inspire, guide and energize you as you plan your activities for UHC Day (translations will be made available in the coming week). More resources, including a more robust digital toolkit and directory of partner activities, will follow as we get closer to 12 December. In the meantime, if you already have a sense of how you’re planning to mark the day, let us know here.

Thank you again for all that you do to keep this movement going strong. We hope you find the Starter Kit helpful, and encourage you to reach out with questions or comments anytime.

Let the countdown begin!
