DIGITAL HEALTH BLUEPRINT
The third goal of the ambitious sustainable development goals (SDGs) sets universal health coverage (UHC) as an
umbrella target. UHC means that all individuals and communities receive the health services they need, at good
quality and without suffering financial hardship. However, we have many challenges to attaining the UHC, including but not limited to the high operational and financial costs needed to expand access to health care to many areas at same time maintaining an acceptable level of quality of care and services. It has now become clear that we may not be able to deliver on universal health coverage unless we change the ways we deliver care and manage our health care systems. Innovative approaches to delivering services that can ensure universal coverage with essential services, in current social and economic environments are therefore empirical.
