World Health Day falls on 7 April 2019. This year, the World Health Organization (WHO) is focusing on universal health coverage, with the aim of helping people better understand what services and support should be available and where. The WHO is calling on people who have access to quality, affordable healthcare to advocate for equal access to care everywhere.

The World Health Day campaign also presents an opportunity for ministers of health, and other government decision-makers, to take action toward filling gaps in health coverage in their countries, as well as to highlight progress that has already been made.
