Striving for universal health coverage
The Lancet's Editorial on the World Health Report
The Lancet "The launch of the report at the ministerial conference means the beginning of a new push towards universal coverage in the context of both the economic downturn and the continuing rise of health-care expenditure. The overarching message is optimistic and practical—that all countries can take steps to move faster to achieve this goal and maintain their achievements. Many countries are beginning to embrace universal coverage."
