Low- and middle-income countries struggle to provide health care to some, while others get too much medicine

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceEducation

Abstract

Access to quality health care is a fundamental human right. Yet more than half the world’s population can’t obtain even the most essential health care. Out-of-pocket costs drive hundreds of millions into extreme poverty

The solution the World Health Organization and many nations promote is to provide universal health coverage, like Australia’s Medicare system. Achieving that is one of the key targets of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
