The march which kick started at the Unity Fountain along Shehu Shagari Way, Maitama, through Adetokunbo Ademola Roadhas been scheduled to end at the Eagle Square, Abuja.

One of the promoters of the event and founding partner of Health Systems Consult Ltd,  Dr. Nkata Chuku, said the demonstration was to mark the 5th anniversary of declaration of December 12 as Universal Health Coverage Day by the United Nations.

Dr. Chuku noted that the universal health coverage status of Nigeria would be reviewed as part of the activities marking the day.

Security agencies were on ground to provide them security while the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) handled the traffic.

This campaign aims at encouraging all nations to implement universal coverage through political actions.

ICN strongly supports the movement and is a strong advocate and believer in health care for all as a solution to combat inequalities, deliver the right care to the right people at the right moment no matter the location and no matter the means.

In this effort ICN has chosen UHC and Health is a Human Right as the themes for the 2018 International Nurses Day with the hashtags #VoiceToLead and #IND2018, uniting the nursing profession as the lynchpin of political action. No one is better place to speak out for UHC and the right to health.
