WHO Art and Creative Contest “UHC We Want”

by Public Health Update

To celebrate International Day for Universal Health Coverage 2022, World Health Organization Regional Office for South-East Asia is organizing an art competition “UHC We Want” to promote ownership and engagement of youth in the Region for UHC; and to raise public awareness on the significance of UHC for health, well-being and quality of human capital. 


Universal Health Coverage (UHC) means that “all individuals and communities receive the health services they need without suffering financial hardship. It includes the full spectrum of essential, quality health services, from health promotion to prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and palliative care across the life course”.
