This means ensuring that everyone, everywhere can access essential quality health services without facing financial hardship.
Why Universal health coverage matters?
World Health Day will shine a spotlight on the need for UHC - and the advantages it can bring.
Some countries have already made significant progress towards universal health coverage.
"I am glad to announce the launching of NIRMAL, a new scheme to strengthen sanitation, security and other supportive services at Public Health Institutions; Sampurna Surakhy Kabacha, a scheme to provide mother and baby kits for all cases of institutional delivery; Sunetra programme to provide Free Universal Eye Healthcare to all; and Sahaya a scheme to provide free dialysis services", said the Chief Minister.
However, Guterres noted that people around the world still lack vital health services. To his consideration, the universal health coverage is a political option, it is necessary to have vision, courage and long-term vision, but the reward is a fairer and healthier world for all. World Health Organization and its partners will share examples of steps to take to get there through a series of events and conversations held at multiple levels.
