Overcoming social barriers to Universal Health Coverage: global experiences both inside and outside the health system

This project is part of wider initiative “Attaining Universal Health Coverage"

The aims of this project are:

  1. Contribute to the G8 2010 meeting to be held in Italy.
  2. Provide pragmatic evidence to assist advocacy and policy making to develop effective intervention programmes, policies and approaches for more equitable access to health care in the developing world.
  3. Explore the key features of the potential strategies to overcome social barriers that hinder UHC through providing a diverse picture of successful experiences and lessons learned in different countries and for different populations.
  4. Identify and analyse global experiences of interventions to overcome social barriers to achieve Universal Health Coverage.
  5. Systematically explore intrasectoral interventions - including those that link the health system to local communities.
  6. Systematically explore intersectoral interventions - those that link the health system to other sectors.
