Collaborating to achieve universal health coverage

Explore how the innovative pharmaceutical industry is partnering to ensure innovation and access contribute to global health progress and improve lives everywhere in this report.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) explicitly strive to engage the private sector in addressing the world’s most pressing challenges and emphasize the importance of cross-sector collaborations. Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is at the heart of the health-related SDGs and the foundation for improving health and well-being for all people at all ages, and for global health security

The private sector, as significant providers of health products and services, makes vital contributions to advance UHC and health security. It is a leader in innovation and new products, techniques, and insights that can improve health care, strengthen health systems, and increase efficiencies

The innovative pharmaceutical industry plays a unique role in driving innovation and is part of the solution toward global efforts to achieve UHC. It supports the efforts of governments and other stakeholders to provide the necessary enabling environments, including through:

  • Building health system readiness and resilience together with a life-course approach
  • Investing more and investing better to achieve and uphold quality UHC
  • Supporting collective public-private collaborations to accelerate progress.
