To achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) everybody must receive the healthcare they need without suffering financial hardship.
UHC is critical for all people, but in particular for newborns, adolescents and women approaching childbirth. Many countries are making valiant commitments to UHC and primary health care, but gaps persist.
A panel discussion recently took place in Geneva addressing how countries, the private sector, and civil society can (and should) collaborate to fulfill the commitment of quality health care for all.
Community health worker, Rita Nakakande, took part in the panel (embedded below) and shared insights on how UHC can be achieved through supported, properly trained, and digitally empowered community health workers.
