Among all global health initiatives—such as the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Roll Back Malaria (the RBM Partnership to End Malaria), and the Stop TB Partnership—universal health coverage (often abbreviated as UHC) has garnered the most political attention. The “sustainable development goals,” adopted by all United Nations (UN) member states in 2015, have a single health goal: to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being “for all at all ages.” Its most important target is to achieve universal health coverage by 2030.
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has made universal coverage the WHO’s highest priority. And last October, the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted a historic political declaration, UHC: Moving Together to Build a Healthier World.
