Kampala Declaration

The WHO states, "For the Africa region as a whole, the participants of the "Evidence Based Workshop on Fair and Sustainable Health Financing" in Kampala (November 2005) endorsed the "Kampala Declaration".

It states that health is a fundamental human right, which must be supported by fair and sustainable health financing systems. In line with WHA resolutions 58:31 and 58:33, it affirms that out of pocket spending should be minimized and prepayments expanded with a view to avoiding impoverishment of households and moving towards universal coverage."
