The theme of this year’s World Health Day is Universal Health Coverage: everyone, everywhere.

A regional consultation organised to mark the World Health Day 2018 by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Ramaiah Medical College made a strong call for ensuring universal health coverage (UHC).

The event was graced by Mr Ajay Seth, Additional Chief Secretary, Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of Karnataka, who stressed upon the importance of working together with all stakeholders to progress towards UHC in the state.

The event focused on deliberating on the various facets of UHC and the way forward in the country, sharing perspectives from the government, experts, non-government organisations, medical colleges, civil service organisations and the private sector.

On the occasion of the World Health Day 2018, Dr Poonam Khatrapal singh, Regional Director, WHO- South East Asia Region, has stated that the promise of UHC is bold- that all people can access quality health services, when and where they need them, without suffering financial hardships.
