About the 2017 Global Monitoring Report

The joint report from the World Bank and the World Health Organization, launched in December 2017, finds that despite some progress on UHC, at least half of the world’s population still cannot obtain essential health services. And each year, close to 100 million people are being pushed into extreme poverty because they must pay for health expenses out of their own pockets. The report is a wake-up call if we are serious about reaching the global goal of UHC by 2030.

 About the UNICO Universal Health Coverage Studies

Following the 24 studies launched in 2014,  15 new studies will be launched on Jan 18. Like the first round, the studies detail the policies used by developing countries that have taken progressive paths to advance UHC. Most of the studies have been prepared by World bank staff and country counterparts.


 Join us January 18th 9-10.30a at The World Bank - MC Building, 1818 H Street, N.W., Washington DC
