What Does Universal Health Coverage Mean for COPHAM Members?

6th September, 2018

In the context of the recent announcement of the launch of Ayushman Bharat, the Government of India’s scheme to address the massive financial security need and the quality of healthcare available in poor and rural areas, the COPHAM facilitated a discussion on universal health coverage (UHC) and how it relates to those implementing integrated health and microfinance programmes.

The process of strengthening India’s health system must ensure health equity and prioritize the poor and marginalized populations, especially mothers and children. To secure the community’s resilience, the solution must include strengthening local knowledge of preventive measures and access to health products and services reinforced by building assets and access to finance, as accessibility may not always guarantee affordability.

As a member of the Community of Practice for Health and Microfinance (COPHAM), you have already demonstrated commitment to improving health outcomes for these communities, and you will have a role to play in India’s UHC agenda.

Featured presenters from RESULTS Australia, Freedom from Hunger India Trust, and Indian Institute of Public Health. Moderated by DSK Rao.
