On the occasion of the International Universal Health Coverage, which is a rallying point for the promise of health for all, COPASAH held a Social Accountability Dialogue Introducing the COPASAH Charter and Call for Social Accountability for Health on December 12, 2019. On the ‘International UHC Day’ to reiterate the promise of health for all, COPASAH shared the broad vision with the Charter and Call to Action of How Citizenship, Governance and Accountability processes can contribute towards better health and the well-being of all, including marginalised and deprived communities. Nearly 21 participants from different regions of Africa, UK, Central Europe, South Asia including practitioners, academicians and researchers participated in the Dialogue. The facilitators presented the points from the COPASAH charter as well as the Call to Action and how it envisages approaching different stakeholders. The participants welcomed the Charter and proposed different initiatives of taking the charter further through blogs, briefs and write ups as well through social media. Proposals were also made by participants to propagate the charter in their academic circles through write ups as well to take it further in global conferences and meets. There were suggestions in the Dialogue for observing International Social Accountability Day.
