Universal Health Coverage – Roles of Physicians, Hospital Administrators, and Governments

Universal health coverage is defined as ensuring that all people have access to needed promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that people do not suffer financial hardship when paying for these services.

Universal health coverage has therefore become a major goal for health reform in many countries and a priority objective of WHO.

Good health is essential to sustained economic and social development and poverty reduction.

Access to needed health services is crucial for maintaining and improving health.

At the same time, people need to be protected from being pushed into poverty because of the cost of health care.
