The webinar is a joint Lancet Citizens’ Commission on Reimagining India’s Health System event with Health Systems Transformation Platform and is being held to mark World Health Day. This year, the theme for World Health Day is the role of health promotion in advancing well-being, equity, and sustainable development. Our distinguished panel will discuss the contribution that health promotion can make to realizing these goals, evidence-based policies for health promotion, and experiences from regional examples of health promotion programs. As a Citizens’ Commission, we invite the public to participate in the discussion, provide input and engage with the panelists.

The Lancet Citizens’ Commission on Reimagining India’s Health System is an ambitious, cross-sectoral endeavor that aims to lay out a citizens’ roadmap to achieving universal health coverage for the people of India. Our new webinar series is intended to serve as a platform for public health discourse in India, and a means for academics, practitioners and the public to engage on substantive and timely issues regarding universal health coverage in India.
