Universal Health Coverage

Universal Health Coverage(UHC) is defined as access to the quality health service without the risk of financial hardships or without being pushed to extreme poverty due to catastrophic health expenditure. Even if, the system design to provide universal access to the quality health service, it also has a significant effect on poverty reduction and increasing social stability.
Besides the pressure from a High prevalence of disease in Africa, the additional reason for focusing into UHC is a moral one: most people are suffering from something that is preventable by integrated health service approach, such as universal health coverage.
Accepting and integration of UHC in the national policy level is not enough, the national policies should be translated into the ground. still, Africa is facing a challenge in spite of the national UHC police, with regard to health insurance and financial protection, mobilizing internal resource and quality health service delivery.
There is no single fit model to achieving universal health coverage in Africa. All policies and strategies should consider each country local conditions. Even though, Africa is a highly diversified continent most of the problems are common to all countries. Africa should work on the basements of universal health coverage temple. such as peace, good governance, and health financing. In addition, Africa should also give attention to strengthening the pillars of UHC temple such as Health information, health human resource, medical products(health technologies) and service delivery.
