World Health Day 2018 - Universal Health Care For All



About WHO
Who we are, what we do

"Our goal is to build a better, healthier future for people all over the world. Working through offices in more than 150 countries, WHO staff work side by side with governments and other partners to ensure the highest attainable level of health for all people.

Together we strive to combat diseases – infectious diseases like influenza and HIV and noncommunicable ones like cancer and heart disease. We help mothers and children survive and thrive so they can look forward to a healthy old age. We ensure the safety of the air people breathe, the food they eat, the water they drink – and the medicines and vaccines they need."


WHO Director-General Dr Tedros message for World Health Day 2018



    Key messages for World Health Day 2018





1. Universal health coverage is about ensuring all people can get quality health services, where and when they need them, without suffering financial hardship.

2. No one should have to choose between good health and other life necessities.

3. UHC is key to people’s and nations’ health and well-being.
UHC is feasible. Some countries have made great progress. Their challenge is to maintain coverage to meet people’s expectations.

4. All countries will approach UHC in different ways: there is no one size fits all. But every country can do something to advance UHC.

5. Making health services truly universal requires a shift from designing health systems around diseases and institutions towards health services designed around and for people.
