World Health Day 2018 and Health coverage for All

This year’s World Health Day is dedicated to universal health coverage, which remains a distant reality for millions of people in Europe and around the world. Universal health coverage is about ensuring all people can get affordable quality health services, where and when they need them.

On World Health Day, Mental Health Europe calls for parity of esteem between physical and mental health. Quality healthcare should provide affordable and accessible community-based mental health services, which are recovery oriented and respectful of people’s rights. Making health and mental health services truly universal requires a shift from designing health systems around diseases and institutions towards health services designed with and for people
