This e-Learning course on universal health coverage advocacy offers bitesize online modules to learn about the essence of UHC2030 Advocacy Guide.

The guide aims to share specific tools to help you call on policy and decision makers to focus on improving any and all of the three pillars of Healthy systems for universal health coverage - a joint vision for healthy lives: service delivery, health financing and governance.

Every community must have the access to a quality health services, and the cost of health care must not push any individual in a community to poverty and death in seconds. Communities with a better and secure health policies, implementation, and clean environment lives longer than the others with a poor health conditions. What is needed to achieve a universal health coverage? ($) A strong, efficient, well-run health system that meets priority health needs through people-centred integrated care by: - informing and encouraging people to stay healthy and prevent illness. - detecting health conditions early. - having the capacity to treat disease, and helping patients with rehabilitation, ensuring sensitive palliative care where needed. ($) Affordability – a system for financing health services so people do not suffer financial hardship when using them. ($) Availability of essential medicines and technologies to diagnose and treat medical problems. ($) A sufficient capacity of well-trained, motivated health workers to provide the services to meet patients’ needs based on the best available evidence. ($) Actions to address social determinants of health such as education, living conditions and household income which affect people’s health and their access to services. (WHO)

Just the other day people from various counties were being encouraged to register for UHC cards which are meant to help them access free health services in public hospitals, but I have heard them reason out both positively and negatively. Some are happy about it but a few have related it to politics, which has to some great percentage influenced matters to do with health and other sectors and has prevented others to go for it. People do not understand the importance of this, so how can we educate people from our communities about the importance of health and create awareness on universal health care.
