Nina and her family have all had different health problems, but they are now able to sit and enjoy a happy and healthy meal together. This is not the case for many people around the world, which is why universal health coverage is so important.

Universal Health Coverage: everyone, everywhere

History is made by our achievements. We have come a long way to make the impossible possible: from the control of fire, to life-saving vaccines to landing on the moon. Our next historic achievement is right in front of us: health for all humankind. What if everyone had access to the health services they need? What if they were not published into poverty paying for the services? Together, we can make universal health coverage happen in our lifetime.
