Stronger collaboration, better health: global action plan for healthy lives and well-being for all

World Health Organization WHO; The Global Fund; UNAIDS, et al., (2019)


The overall objective of the Global Action Plan is to enhance collaboration among 12 global organizations engaged in health, development and humanitarian responses to accelerate country progress on the health-related SDG targets. The Plan presents a new approach to strengthening collaboration among and joint action by the organizations, building on an initial joint commitment made in October 2018. The Plan is primarily intended to be strategic but provides some operational detail to guide implementation while also allowing flexibility for adjustment based on regular reviews of progress and learning from experience. Although the purpose of the Global Action Plan is not to provide or seek additional resources, the Plan will enable better use of existing resources as a result of improved collaboration, recognizing that each agency has its own unique mandate and area of expertise.

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.

Gesundheit für alle - Ein Wegweiser durch das deutsche Gesundheitswesen

Ethno-Medizinischen Zentrum e.V., Eds.: Bundesministerium für Gesundheit (BMG), (2019)


Das deutsche Gesundheitssystem zählt immer noch zu den besten auf der Welt – nicht aber zu den am einfachsten verständlichen. Nicht nur für Menschen, die gerade erst nach Deutschland gekommen sind oder noch nicht lange hier leben, ist es oft schwer zu überblicken, wie genau es funktioniert und wie man sich darin am besten zurechtfindet. Schon die Frage, ob und wie man sich krankenversichern kann, ist schwierig zu beantworten. An wen kann man sich wenden, wenn man selbst oder ein Familienmitglied krank ist? Geht man zuerst zu einem Arzt oder lieber direkt ins Krankenhaus? Und wenn zum Arzt, zu welchem eigentlich? Warum ist Gesundheitsvorsorge so wichtig und welche Vorsorge- und Früherkennungsuntersuchungen sind sinnvoll und sollten unbedingt wahrgenommen werden? Auf welche Unterstützungsleistungen der Pflegeversicherung besteht ein Anspruch?

Health: A Political Choice

Kirton, J. and I. Kickbusch, Eds.: Global Governance Project, WHO;, (2019)


Universal Health Coverage is based on the principle that all individuals and communities should have access to quality essential health services without suffering financial hardship. Universal Health Coverage cannot be delivered by the health sector alone. It requires the highest political support.There is now a global pledge to achieve Universal Health Coverage. When all 193 Member States of the United Nations agreed on the Sustainable Development Goals in New York in 2015, they set out an ambitious agenda for a safer, fairer and healthier world by 2030. Achieving Universal Health Coverage by 2030 is essential to enabling a healthier world for us all Health: A Political Choice (Gesundheit: Eine politische Entscheidung) ruft Weltführer und Politiker auf der ganzen Welt auf, die Umsetzung einer universellen medizinischen Versorgung zu priorisieren. Mehr als die Hälfte der Weltbevölkerung hat keinen Zugang zu grundlegenden Gesundheitsdiensten, einschließlich Impfungen, der Möglichkeit, einen Gesundheitsarbeiter zu sehen, oder auf HIV-Behandlung zuzugreifen. Selbst wenn diese Dienste verfügbar sind, kann ihre Nutzung finanziellen Ruin bedeuten.
