Advancing Fiscal Policies for Public Health

Global Health Advocacy Incubator



Advocacy for effective fiscal policies for health can strengthen the resilience of health systems hit by the COVID-19 crisis, while accelerating progress toward the Sustainable Development Agenda and Universal Health Coverage. These policies often focus on the use of excise taxes to raise the prices of health-harming products—including tobacco, alcohol and sugar-sweetened beverages—which reduces consumption, prevents disease, saves lives and raises revenues. Join this event at 3:00 p.m. CEST to hear from advocates around the world on what it takes to get these measures passed—and implemented. The event will be simultaneously interpreted in French and Spanish.
