Health: A Political Choice
Universal Health Coverage is based on the principle that all individuals and communities should have access to quality essential health services without suffering financial hardship. Universal Health Coverage cannot be delivered by the health sector alone. It requires the highest political support.There is now a global pledge to achieve Universal Health Coverage. When all 193 Member States of the United Nations agreed on the Sustainable Development Goals in New York in 2015, they set out an ambitious agenda for a safer, fairer and healthier world by 2030. Achieving Universal Health Coverage by 2030 is essential to enabling a healthier world for us all.
Health: A Political Choice, is the inaugural edition of an official publication of the Global Governance Project and is supported by the World Health Organization. Published and launched in time for the G20 summit in Osaka on June 28-30, 2019 it will focus on the central importance of how and what needs to happen to deliver universal health coverage.
The Global Governance Project is a joint initiative between GT Media Group Ltd, a publishing company based in London, the Global Governance Program based at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at Trinity College in the University of Toronto and the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva.
