Every person should be able to access quality health services without suffering financial hardship. Each year IAPB lends its support to Universal Health Coverage Day recognising the critical need to improve health services and health access particularly in lower income countries.
Universal Health Coverage day is celebrated on 12 December. It is the anniversary of the landmark United Nations resolution adopted in 2012 when all countries agreed to move towards providing affordable, quality health care to every person, everywhere.
IAPB calls on leaders to make greater investments in health systems, bolster their human resources for health, and ensure that access to health is not dependent on who you are, where you live, or what you earn.
