Advancing universal health coverage in Africa
Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is at the heart of the health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is the foundation for both global health security and the health and well-being of all people throughout their lifetimes.
Africa’s health systems are essential in delivering the UHC2030 action agenda. Given Africa’s population is expected to double by 2050, achieving UHC today on
the continent also ensures that its health systems are strengthened and safeguarded to meet the needs of a growing population.
The innovative pharmaceutical industry has long been committed to partnering across sectors and stakeholders to develop innovative solutions that increase access to diagnosis, treatment, and care. In a year dedicated to UHC, we recognize the need to double down on our collective efforts to accelerate a sustainable health ecosystem in Africa.
