12 December is International Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Day and an opportunity to raise awareness on the need for strong and resilient health systems and UHC. Universal health coverage means that all people and communities receive the health services they need without facing financial hardship.
Ahead of the International Day for Universal Health Coverage, the Education and Solidarity Network (ESN) organized on 9 December 2021 an international exchange in a webinar entitled « Youth in action on Health ». The message? “All over the world, young people are already mobilizing for health for all! Together we can achieve universal health coverage! “
With the aim of sharing good practices, and in order to highlight initiatives led by young people, ESN has launched a call for applications and invited its members and partners to present in video format an initiative mobilizing young people in solidarity for health initiatives.
Mutual SER EPS, a Colombian mutual, responded and proposed its “SER Joven” (Being young) program. Their objective is to minimize the risks faced by young people through awareness-raising and training campaigns as well as mobile reproductive and sexual health care units for young people between 10 and 24 years old. The young protagonist Daniela Viana presented it to us in the video that you can discover below.
This initiative was also selected and presented by Daniela Viana during our webinar « Youth in action on Health ».
