On 12 December 2012, the resolution on global health and foreign policy (A/RES/67/81) recommended to include universal health coverage in the discussions on the post-2015 development agenda in the context of global health challenges. Member states recognized the importance of universal coverage in national health systems, especially through primary health-care and social protection mechanisms, to provide access to health services for all, in particular for the poorest segments of the population.
On 25 September 2015, the resolution on Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (A/RES/70/1) adopted the target of universal health coverage by 2030, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.
