Self-Care and Universal Health Coverage

Universal health coverage ensures all people, everywhere, can access quality essential health services.

Why is self-care so important to attain universal health coverage?

The Role of Self-Care in
Universal Health Coverage

What is UHC, and why is it important?

Universal health coverage (UHC) ensures all people, everywhere, can access quality essential health services with financial protection. It is firmly rooted in the human right to health and requires strong political leadership. Because affordable, accessible, quality health services unlock people’s potential, UHC is one of the smartest investments countries can make. And nearly all countries, including low income countries, have the capacity to mobilise the resources required to achieve UHC. Achieving UHC is essential for inclusive development, prosperity, gender equality and fairness.

THE ECONOMICS OF SELF-CARE

Study Overview and objectives

In order to demonstrate the potential economic and societal benefits of an increase in the number and variety of OTC medicines for consumers and patients in Mexico, Bayer commissioned a study (Sep-Dec´16) to quantify the cost differences between OTC self-care versus the costs for treatment through Mexico’s public health systems for several common, non-serious conditions.
