  A new grant programme largely funded by the European Development Fund (EDF) will support all 78   African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries in an effort to strengthen their regional health systems   and tackle non-communicable diseases and health security issues.


  On Tuesday (18 June), EU Commissioner for International Cooperation Neven Mimica and WHO   Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus signed a new financial agreement under which the EU   will help the UN agency try to reach the ambitious goal of universal health coverage (UHC) by 2030.

  “Universal health coverage is definitely our top priority,” said Tedros Adhanom at the signing ceremony   held at this year’s European Development Days in Brussels. “Our vision is to see 1 billion more people     benefiting from health coverage in between now and 2023,” he added.
