International Universal Health Coverage Day History
International Universal Health Coverage Day (UHC) seeks to promote universal health care through insurance. Health Coverage by health insurance is when an organization provides the costs or means for medical care. Health insurance is beneficial for those who are unable to pay for medical treatment or medicine as they are typically expensive. This observance is promoted by the United Nations. They believe it is essential for international progression and development of a country. On this day it is popular for UHC participants to share stories about the millions of people who are without health insurance.
