Why are we focusing on UHC?
Universal Health Coverage means that all individuals and communities receive the health services they need without suffering financial hardship. It includes the full spectrum of essential, quality health services, from health promotion to prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and palliative care.
Access To Care
Human Rights + Legal Issues
Innovation and research
Psychosocial support and spirituality
Clinical Care across all ages
What are people saying?
