World Economic Forum (13.03.2019) When the World Health Organization reports that half the global population does not have access to essential healthcare, it's easy to be pessimistic about the chances of giving all of Africa’s children a healthy start in life. But as we approach World Health Day on April 7, health experts are optimistic that an initiative announced in Mali to provide basic healthcare to all under fives and pregnant women may help provide a solution to an intractable problem.

Next steps towards universal health coverage call for global leadership

Submitted by dfabbri on Mon, 05/27/2019 - 08:43

Since it was explicitly incorporated into the sustainable development goals (SDGs) as target 3.8, much effort has been expended on promoting UHC.

These challenges are as relevant in low- and middle-income countries, so that expanding coverage also translates into better health outcomes for all.
