World Health Day messages
Universal health coverage is about ensuring all people can get quality health services, where and when they need them, without suffering financial hardship.
No one should have to choose between good health and other life necessities.
UHC is key to people’s and nations’ health and well-being.
UHC is feasible. Some countries have made great progress. Their challenge is to maintain coverage to meet people’s expectations.
All countries will approach UHC in different ways: there is no one size fits all. But every country can do something to advance UHC.
Making health services truly universal requires a shift from designing health systems around diseases and institutions towards health services designed around and for people.
Everyone can play a part in the path to UHC, by taking part in a UHC conversation.
Too many people are currently missing out on health coverage
“Universal” in UHC means “for all”, without discrimination, leaving no one behind.
Everyone everywhere has a right to benefit from health services they need without falling into poverty when using them.
