Health Related Intersectoral Interventions: Pakistan Action Plan 2022-30

Consistent with the definition of UHC, intersectoral health-promoting interventions are critical for achieving UHC and are a major component of national health policy. They are essential in addressing common risk factors like tobacco use, micronutrient deficiencies, other forms of malnutrition and unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, harmful use of alcohol, injuries, air pollution and other environmental risks. Implementing intersectoral health interventions is a key message of the political declaration of the United Nations high-level meeting on universal health coverage in 2019.
