Universal Health Coverage: An Opportunity for Investors

Friday, November 13, 2015

Universal health coverage isn’t just one of the UN’s future goals, it’s also an opportunity for investors.

With the ink now dry on theSustainable Development Goals, having been unanimously agreed by all 193 UN members in September, the world has an unprecedentedly broad mandate for global action over the next 15 years.

 One of the striking differences between this new agenda and the Millennium Development Goals is that so many of the goals apply to everyone, not just sub-Saharan Africa. For example, gender equality, sustainable energy and wealth inequalities.

This is also the case with Goal 3, which calls for the achievement of universal health care coverage (UHC) by 2030.
