Our world cannot prosper if people continue to suffer from preventable conditions and diseases because they lack the resources to access adequate treatment.

Yet currently, hundreds of millions of people around the world are currently denied necessary health services or are plunged into poverty because they are forced to pay unaffordable fees for their care.

Virgin Unite, The Elders, Walk Together

This burden is particularly felt by women, children and adolescents, who often have high needs for healthcare but least access to financial resources. The ambition to live in security, the idea behind Universal Health Coverage, is timeless. 

Across the #WalkTogether campaign, The Elders will push for freedom for health for every child, woman, man and family, in place of fear and in step with progress.


With the support of a great group of partners Virgin Unite had the privilege of incubating The Elders in 2007 & now a decade on, the Elders are celebrating their 10th anniversary and the #WalkTogether campaign.

Follow the campaign on Twitter and Facebook and the #WalkTogether hashtag so you don’t miss a moment.
