Sharing knowhow and joining forces towards Health for All

Access to health care

"Universal coverage of health care means that everyone in the population has access to appropriate promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health care when they need it and at an affordable cost. Universal coverage thus implies equity of access and financial risk protection. It is also based on the notion of equity in financing, i.e. that people contribute on the basis of ability to pay rather than according to whether they fall ill." (WHO)
