Towards Universal Health Coverage

The goal of the HSSP II is to move towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) of quality, equitable and affordable health care with the aim of improving health status, financial risk protection and client satisfaction.  

UHC is defined as a situation where everyone – irrespective of their ability-to-pay – gets the health services they need in a timely fashion without suffering any undue financial hardship because of receiving the care. Malawi is moving towards UHC through implementation of the essential health package, which Government and its development partners will endeavour to make accessible to every Malawian free at the point of care.
