Achieving Universal Health Coverage

Achieving Universal Health Coverage

We at MSH believe that health care must be equitable, accessible, and affordable; people must be able to obtain the health services they need without suffering financial hardship.  

Our support to country- and local-level interventions helps political and public health leaders take the bold steps necessary to move toward universal health coverage (UHC), acknowledging that health systems founded on strong primary health care are essential to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and universal health coverage. We convene civil society representatives, government officials, businesses, and academia to ensure that UHC policies are inclusive, equitable, and provide financial risk protection, and that systematic attention is given to the most marginalized populations, so that no one is left behind.
