Today is Universal Health Coverage Day! For health systems to work, they must work for everyone – no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they have.
In the world we want, all people can access quality health services without financial hardship. Universal health coverage lifts people out of poverty, promotes the well-being of families and communities, protects against public health crises, and moves us toward #HealthForAll.
How can we build a healthier future for all?
For UHC Day 2022, we asked health and development leaders from civil society, national governments and multilateral organizations around the world how we can build a healthier future for all. Their responses illustrate what is needed to build the world we want – one where everyone, everywhere has access to essential health services, without financial hardship.
