(Geneva) – World Health Organisation, WHO, is urging countries to move towards universal health coverage and to scale up international investment in catalytic development funding.
The call comes as world leaders travel to the Third UN Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa to discuss ways to pay for the new Sustainable Development Goals, to be launched in New York in September 2015.
“The best way to assure meaningful progress towards the new global health goal is for countries to move closer to universal health coverage,” said Dr. Margaret Chan, WHO Director-General.
Many countries will need help to generate the funding to do this. This week’s conference will focus on strengthening international cooperation to build developing countries’ capacity to improve domestic tax policy and revenue collection as well as efforts to reduce illicit financial flows and tax avoidance at the international level.
