International Universal Health Coverage Day

On December 12, we address the importance of quality and affordable healthcare for everyone.

On December 12, the world commemorates International Universal Health Coverage Day to remember the date in 2012 when the United Nations General Assembly encouraged all countries to leave no one’s health behind and aim for universal health coverage (UHC). International Universal Health Coverage Day addresses the importance of quality healthcare for everyone.

What is Universal Health Coverage?

UHC means all communities can get the necessary health services by being informed about their available options. It goes from health promotion and prevention to quality health services regarding treatments, rehabilitation therapies, or even palliative care throughout their lives.

Health for All: Time for Action

This year’s theme, “Health for All: Time for Action,” resonates deeply in a world facing unprecedented health challenges. It calls for concerted efforts from governments, healthcare providers, policymakers, and communities to advance UHC agendas, reinforcing the belief that health is not a privilege but a fundamental need.

This meaningful exclamation encourages global leaders to take influential steps to strengthen health systems, promote health equity, and address the disparities hindering healthcare access for marginalized populations.

Universal Health Coverage Day is the annual rallying point for supporters to boost their voices and help spread the word about high-quality health care.

By making it easier for health providers to communicate more efficiently, we can improve the well-being and health of our communities. In addition, we want everyone to be aware of recommended services and treatment guidelines essential to improving health.
