Knowledge SUCCESS, FP2030, Population Action International (PAI), and Management Sciences for Health (MSH) have partnered on a three-part collaborative dialogue series on universal health coverage (UHC) and family planning. The first 90-minute dialogue explored high-level UHC commitments and specific UHC policies in several different contexts.
This collection includes a mix of resources categorized into several topics, including: conceptual framework, normative guidance, policy advocacy, etc. Each entry comes with a short summary and statement on why it is essential. We hope you find these resources informative.
Universal health coverage (UHC) characterizes an ideal where all people have access to the health services they need, when and where they need them, without financial hardship. In the same way that the long-term consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic will place a heavy burden on health systems, so too will the lack of reproductive health care.
As governments and global bodies collectively work toward universal health coverage, self-care is an important — if not critical — element. Self-care equips people to act as informed agents of and protect their own health, prevent disease, and treat illness, both with and without the support of a healthcare provider.
