To achieve universal healthcare, countries need to strengthen their public sector

Scroll.in "Universal health coverage has dominated the global health discourse over the last decade. The political declaration of the United Nations High Level Meeting on universal health coverage that has emerged out of intensive negotiations between countries and advocacy by civil society, illustrates the global political commitment towards it.
A significant omission in the political declaration is the lack of commitment to strengthening delivery of public sector health services, which reflects the dominant discourse on universal health coverage. The emphasis continues to be on healthcare financing, with less emphasis on how provisioning of services should be organised." (Photo: EU Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid/flickr, CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)
