Primary Health Care on the Road to Universal Health Coverage. Excecutive Summary

World Health Organization WHO, (2019)


Countries must invest at least 1% more of GDP on primary health care to eliminate glaring coverage gaps At current rates of progress up to 5 billion people will miss out on health care in 2030 Countries must increase spending on primary healthcare by at least 1% of their gross domestic product (GDP) if the world is to close glaring coverage gaps and meet health targets agreed in 2015, says this new report. They must also intensify efforts to expand services countrywide. The world will need to double health coverage between now and 2030, according to the Universal Health Coverage Monitoring Report. It warns that if current trends continue, up to 5 billion people will still be unable to access health care in 2030 – the deadline world leaders have set for achieving universal health coverage. Most of those people are poor and already disadvantaged.

Delivering Universal Health Coverage 2030 Health: A political choice

Ilona Kickbusch, Eds.: WHO, (2019)


At least half of the world’s population does not have full coverage of essential health services. Health expenses push more than 100 million people into extreme poverty each and every year, forcing them into terrible choices that no one should ever have to make: Buy medicine or food? Education or health care? These stark statistics make the case for universal health coverage compelling.
