From the launch of the 2010 World Health Report to the Montreux Global Symposium on Health Systems Research, universal health coverage (UHC) has decisively risen to the top of the global health agenda. At the same time, there is growing debate on the definition, approach, and results of such health coverage reforms. Is UHC just a buzzword? Or is there a concrete and worthwhile movement behind universal health coverage?

The event will begin with the concept of universal health coverage, and key trends observed across countries pursuing health financing reforms. It will then turn to panelists to discuss other perspectives on UHC, and close with presentations on global initiatives, including the Joint Learning Network and Providing for Health, that are supporting efforts to expand coverage in countries. The session will be moderated by Julian Schweitzer, Principal at Results for Development.
