This week health ministers from around the world are meeting at the Sixty-fifth World Health Assembly (WHA) to discuss health issues that impact people everywhere. World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan opened the meeting on Monday by calling for universal health coverage.
“Universal health coverage is the best way to cement the gains made during the previous decade. It is the ultimate expression of fairness. This is the anchor for the work of WHO as we move forward,” said Dr. Chan.
