The webinar will be moderated by Dr. DK Mangal, Professor and Dean (Research), Advisor, SD Gupta School of Public Health, IIHMR University.

There are three dimensions to UHC: population coverage, services coverage, and financial risk protection. The goal is to make available to 100% of the population a broad-enough range of essential health services that cover 100% of their healthcare needs and ensure that 100% of the population can receive these services without incurring health expenditure that is more than 10% of the monthly household expenditure. Advocacy is being made for the Indian Public Health Act with a mandate to protect and promote the health of people as a fundamental right to health and health care; and establishing an autonomous ‘Public Health Commission’ to implement the provisions of the Act.
