Addressing cancer control within Universal Health Coverage (UHC) - Report

Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is grounded in the principle that the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health is a fundamental human right. It is a longstanding tenet of global health
and has, in recent years, become the overarching framework for policies and investments in health globally and nationally.

Enshrined as Sustainable Development Goal 3.8 (SDG), UHC has been adopted as a standalone global commitment and a mechanism to make progress across a suite of other SDGs, including the elimination of poverty, education, gender equality, decent work and economic growth.
