The Action for Global Health Network was thrilled to launch its ‘Global Health Charity Show’ on UK Health Radio in March this year, a monthly global health education and information radio show.
Each month a different health-related charity or organisation from the network hosts a show on an aspect of health affecting the world today. Whether that’s discussing the challenges of equal access to healthcare globally, tackling malnutrition and hunger or how our changing climate is affecting our health – it’s all packed into this 50-minute show hosted by a diverse range of charities alongside their expert guests.
In the fifth episode, The George Institute‘s Claudia Selin Batz sits down with Professors Jane Hirst and Stephen Jan to discuss the importance of Universal Health Coverage (UHC). They cover concerns about the economic burden of chronic conditions on households and catastrophic impact it often carries on the most underserved populations, consider whether the NHS provides UHC today, and discuss how UHC can be integrated within existing health systems to deliver quality care globally. They also touch on recommendations for the UK to accelerate progress towards UHC globally and why it matters to us all.
