Launch of the WHO position paper on building health systems resilience for universal health coverage and health security during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond
WHO has developed a position paper on “Building health systems resilience for UHC and health security during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.” The paper calls for renewed and heightened national and global commitment to building resilient health systems through integration of universal health coverage and health security efforts by:
- investing in primary health care and essential public health functions while addressing gaps in health systems foundations
- strengthening preparedness of countries to tackle all forms of public health threats
- ensuring whole-of-government and whole-of-society engagement to position health as central to socioeconomic growth and resilience.
