AFRIDAC has been part of a growing global campaign for a proposed Framework Convention on Global Health (FCGH) – a global treaty based in human rights and aimed at national and global health equity. The framework is focused on all people, wherever they live, to enable easy access to comprehensive universal health coverage in a health system that does not discriminate. AFRIDAC drafted the Africa advocacy strategy for the global campaign; organised and presented at a side session at the 2016 World Health Assembly in Geneva.
