The Impact of Universal Coverage Schemes in the Developing World: A Review of the Existing Evidence

Authors

Abstract

Although the concept of universal health coverage (UHC) is not new, over the last few years its importance and visibility have significantly increased. In 2005, the 58th World Health Assembly adopted a resolution encouraging countries to plan the transition to UHC in their health systems. In 2010, the World Health Organization devoted its World Health Report to a discussion of health care financing alternatives for achieving universal coverage. The current movement to promote UHC has been accompanied by other key actors in the field of global health such as the World Bank, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United States Agency for International Development, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, among others.
