Action for Global Health publishes Stocktake Review

8 May 2024

Unlimit Health is a proud member of Action for Global Health (AfGH), an influential network of more than 50 organisations working towards a world where health equity is achieved and everyone has access to the quality healthcare they need without being forced into financial hardship.

Harnessing the expertise and strength of its members and partners, including people with lived experience of health inequity globally and civil society organisations based in low- and middle-income countries, AfGH works to secure political action and commitments in the UK to improve health equity globally.

Today, AfGH publishes the Stocktake Review. This report, created with the support of its membership and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, provides an assessment and a series of recommendations for the UK’s role in global health.

Reflecting on the report, Wendy Harrison, Unlimit Health’s CEO said,

“While the UK Government has long been committed to global health, this commitment should be supported through implementation plans and financial allocations, to achieve healthy outcomes for all. Recent cuts to UK overseas aid have impacted negatively on people affected by neglected tropical diseases and other health inequities, and set back efforts to strengthen health systems. As members of Action for Global Health, we call on the UK Government to maintain their world leading role in providing long-term, bold pledges to key global health goals and partnerships, stepping up efforts to build resilient, inclusive and strong health systems.”

The review provides a snapshot of the UK Government’s current political, financial and programmatic commitments to global health, as well as reviewing progress towards recommendations made in the previous Stocktake Review.
