Voices Inspiring Change
Voices Inspiring Change aims to fill the persistent gap of engaging and highlighting voices outside of typical stakeholder groups like policymakers, donors, partners, and technical advisors. Voices Inspiring Change seeks to amplify the stories and knowledge of the full range of stakeholders who have a stake in how the UHC agenda is shaped and carried forward in their countries. The initiative calls attention to the responsibility of policy makers to include critical voices in health policy discussions that support their country’s movement towards UHC. Policies are more equitable, responsive, and effective when they are inclusive of the voices they are intended to benefit.
Voices Inspiring Change will share stories and perspectives from every ACS country and when available, from non-ACS countries. In addition to sharing stories of UHC champions, ACS also builds partnerships with each Voices Inspiring Change participant and will provide future story updates to assess changes to the UHC challenges and opportunities shared in their initial stories. The beauty of Voices Inspiring Change is that the stories and how they are shared will look differently in each country and ACS will remain responsive to how best to create and share these stories.
