Universal Health Coverage

To achieve universal health coverage by 2030 countries will need strong and resilient health systems that are capable of delivering affordable, high-quality health services. Governments will need to use people-centered and integrated approaches that strive to meet the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable populations to ensure equity and sustainability. Countries will need the capacity to plan, mobilize resources, and manage human resources.

JSI’s total market approach has strengthened health systems and improved access to life-saving commodities and services in more than 107 countries. We rely on local expertise to assess and respond to local needs quickly. In turn, local experts draw on JSI’s global knowledge to offer our country partners new, evidence-based ideas to help them achieve their health-related goals and targets.

Universal health coverage is a smart investment that aligns with our mission to improve the health and wellbeing of underserved and vulnerable people and communities around the globe. To this end, JSI partners with governments and stakeholders at every stage to implement efficient, equitable, and effective integrated programs that improve access to essential health services.
