Descrição: 
Relatório de autoria de  Jesse B. Bump,  publicado em outubro 2010.Universal health coverage (UHC) has risen to the forefront of the global health agenda in the past few years, as reflected by donor pledges, international  declarations, and high‐profile publications (BBC News 2009; Garrett, Chowdhury et  al. 2009). The next World Health Report will focus on UHC, and other recent efforts  have worked to identify sustainable financing for health systems strengthening. For  instance, to coincide with the final report of the Taskforce on Innovative  International Financing for Health Systems (TIIFHS)1 in September of 2009, donors  announced commitments and new financing strategies expected to generate US$5.3  billion. At the same time, six developing countries announced policy reforms to  increase access to health services, including the elimination of user fees, the  provision of free care, and new insurance mechanisms (TIIFHS 2009).
