Join 200+ organizations around the world to launch the first Universal Health Coverage Day on 12 December, 2014. This historic coalition will mark the anniversary of a landmark UN resolution urging all countries to provide universal access to health care without financial hardship. No one should fall into poverty because they get sick and need health care. Universal health coverage is essential for making progress in the fight against cancer and for creating a fairer, more resilient society.
5 REASONS FOR UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE:
1.Because health is a right, not a privilege
2.Because no one should go bankrupt when they get sick
3.Because universal health coverage is attainable
4.Because universal health coverage can help stop the world’s biggest killers
5.Because health transforms communities, economies and nation.
