In recent years, a growing number of countries have been committing to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC), whereby all people receive the health services they need of good quality, without risk of financial hardship. UHC is also an agreed target in the Sustainable Development Goals, with the potential to tie together the other health targets and facilitate a more integrated and harmonised approach to implementation. Efforts are underway to improve monitoring of progress towards UHC at global and country levels, and the time is ripe to seize opportunities to strengthen multi-stakeholder mechanisms for accountability for progress towards UHC.
Universal health coverage and access represents a platform to advance family planning and the FP2020 goals. However, stewardship from the public sector is critical. Speakers will explore the intersection of financing, policy, and accountability as countries move into universal access for Family Planning in the new post-2015 era.

With maternal mortality and other women’s health targets among those lagging furthest behind in the soon-to-expire Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), new thinking is needed to better address gender-based health inequities. At the same time, universal health coverage is expected to figure prominently in any post-MDG development framework.
