The Joint Working Team for primary health care and universal health coverage (JWT for PHC & UHC) connects three levels of WHO—from country, regional and global offices across different technical areas—as well as donors and observers in supporting the achievement of country priorities in the journey towards health for all. It serves as the implementation support mechanism of the UHC Partnership.
