WHO[i] defines Universal health coverage (UHC) as a means of ensuring that all people and communities can use the promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative health services they need, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that the use of these services does not expose the user to financial hardship.

 

This UHC definition embodies health system strengthening elements; equity in the access to health services, quality of the health services and protection from financial risk. The Senior Director for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) will spearhead MSH’s technical assistance on pathways to UHC in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The Senior Director will build MSH’s practice in advising governments on the design, implementation and monitoring of large scale health financing sector reforms aimed at increasing population and service coverage, financial protection, quality and equity. He/she will be highly visible in the global UHC technical community, strengthening MSH’s position as a thought leader in this space, and provide overall direction to MSH’s HSS work in the light of UHC.

 

MSH has long advocated for UHC in LMICs, consistent with our identity as a health systems strengthening non-profit dedicated to improving health outcomes through stronger health systems. UHC as a technical assistance area is an MSH priority and a focus of communications and advocacy efforts.

 

In this newly created position, the Senior Director will lead HPG’s health care financing unit and will link with Pharmaceuticals Health Technology’s (PHT) medicines benefit’s work. He/she will draw upon MSH’s global reach and experience, interfacing with other MSH experts to coordinate technical assistance in health financing, service delivery, human resources for health, governance, medicines, innovation and other areas, in the context of UHC reforms. In managing the health financing team, he/she will work to identify UHC-related opportunities for MSH in partnership with governments, aid agencies, international organizations (World Bank, WHO), donors, the private sector, NGOs, academia and others.

 

[i] UHC is firmly based on the WHO constitution of 1948 declaring health a fundamental human right and on the Health for All agenda set by the Alma Ata declaration in 1978. UHC cuts across all of the health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and brings hope of better health and protection for the world’s poorest.
