Women’s health should be a priority of any health policy. Around the world, women suffer from unequal access to health services. Universal health coverage (UHC) can help expand access to quality, essential women’s health services when it is designed, implemented and monitored properly. UHC has proven a powerful driver for women’s health in low- and middle-income countries.

Please join us for this roundtable discussion, which will explore the linkages between women’s health and UHC, highlighting the opportunities provided by UHC as a central component of the post-2015 health agenda.
