The WHO states (verbatim):

“For a community or country to achieve universal health coverage, several factors must be in place, including:

1) A strong, efficient, well-run health system that meets priority health needs through people-centred integrated care (including services for HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, non-communicable diseases, maternal and child health) by:

・ informing and encouraging people to stay healthy and prevent illness;

・ detecting health conditions early;

・ having the capacity to treat disease; and

・ helping patients with rehabilitation

2) Affordability: a system for financing health services so people do not suffer financial hardship when using them. This can be achieved in a variety of ways.

3) Access to essential medicines and technologies to diagnose and treat medical problems.

4) A sufficient capacity of well-trained, motivated health workers to provide the services to meet patients” needs based on the best available evidence.
