Given the scale of incidence and geographic scope of malaria, neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and childhood illnesses, tackling these will pose both challenges and opportunities in designing and implementing universal health coverage (UHC) in most countries. In the highest-burden countries, reducing the incidence and mortality rates associated with these diseases and illnesses will be a necessary first step to achieving UHC and an effective health system. In turn, the pathway to UHC presents a significant opportunity to scale up cost-effective, quality-assured services targeting malaria, NTDs and childhood illness to populations and communities in need.
