In recent years, there has been a growing movement across the globe for universal health coverage (UHC) – ensuring that everyone who needs health services is able to get them, without undue financial hardship. This has led to a sharp increase in the demand for expertise, evidence, and measures of progress towards UHC and a push for UHC as one of the possible goals of the post-2015 development agenda. This discussion paper proposes a framework for tracking country progress towards UHC, assessing both the aggregate and equitable coverage of health services, as well as financial risk protection.
