Universal Health Coverage

Ensuring That Universal Health Coverage Policies Leave No One Behind

Achieving universal health coverage requires increasing coverage of evidence-based, quality, affordable, and culturally acceptable health services through interventions that respond to the specific needs of different populations, with special attention paid to marginalized groups. We promote universal health coverage by working with health leaders to implement national policies that improve how countries organize and pay for health services. We work with local leaders to help them better collect and analyze data to understand the intended and unintended effects of interventions, see emerging needs, and direct resources accordingly.
