Community forum series

When individuals are given the opportunity to become active agents in their health, this leads to improved health outcomes and helps achieve universal health coverage. Self-care has the potential to transform healthcare and enable people to take the power of their health into their own hands – if funding, policy, regulatory and other barriers are addressed to create a more enabling environment for self-care. 

In order to ensure that these barriers and solutions are identified, the Self-Care Trailblazer Group (SCTG) is hosting a community forum series: four interactive dialogues held virtually over the next year focusing on the needs and wants of those engaging in self-care, ensuring that self-care interventions and behaviors are people-centered and community-owned, and elevating the voices of our consumers. 

At the conclusion of the series, SCTG partners will use the global asks that came out of this forum to develop a policy brief with recommendations to policymakers, funders, and the global community on how to integrate self-care in UHC policies and guidelines and help advance self-care advocacy objectives.
