How Can We Achieve Effective Universal Health Coverage?

HGHI And BMJ Release Collection of Articles Exploring Barriers to UHC 

Universal health coverage (UHC) is priority on the global health agenda. Yet simply prioritizing UHC without answering fundamental underlying questions will lead to the inefficient use of scare resources and little improvement in health and wellbeing. In response, the Harvard Global Health Institute and The BMJ are releasing a collection of articles that draw on empirical evidence and existing knowledge to explore barriers to UHC and approaches to overcoming them. Ultimately, the collection aims to stimulate a debate and encourage ongoing work to fulfil the promise of health for all through UHC.
