Livro editado em 2015, elaborado pela Organização Mundial de Saúde e Banco Mundial. Universal health coverage (UHC) means that all people receive the quality, essential health services they need, without being exposed to financial hardship.A significant number of countries, at all levels of development, are embracing the goal of UHC as the right thing to do for their citizens.  It is a powerful social equalizer and contributes to social cohesion and stability. Every country has the potential to improve the performance of its health system in the main dimensions of UHC: coverage of quality services and financial protection for all. Priorities, strategies and implementation plans for UHC will differ from one country to another. Moving towards UHC is a dynamic, continuous process that requires changes in response to shifting demographic, epidemiological and technological trends, as well as people’s expectations.But in all cases, countries need to integrate regular monitoring of progress towards targets into their plans.In May 2014, the World Health Organization and the World Bank jointly launched a monitoring framework for UHC, based on broad consultation of experts from around the world. The framework focuses on indicators and targets for service coverage – including promotion, prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation – and financial protection for all. This report provides the first global assessment of the current situation and aims to show how progress towards UHC can be measured.
