UCGH Advocacy Mission…

Every year UCGH empowers students to create change by mobilizing them around our advocacy mission:Through the empowerment of young people, UCGH aims to ensure that all people have the right to the highest attainable standard of health (As defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 25).

Key Issues…

UCGH selects three issues that are representative of the National Member Organization’s campaigns and compatible of our advocacy mission. We then organize days of action for each issue area. The key issues are:
