Welcome to the global home of a growing movement for universal health coverage.
Join the global coalition in urging greater action and progress on delivering universal health coverage. Already 100+ countries have taken steps toward ensuring everyone can access essential health services without financial hardship.
Universal Health Coverage Day, commemorated each 12 December, is the anniversary of the first unanimous United Nations resolution calling for countries to provide affordable, quality health care to every person, everywhere.
Universal health coverage has been included in the new Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations.
