We are proud to highlight the release of The Road to Universal Health Coverage: Innovation, Equity, and the New Health Economy, a new book on universal health care and the private sector edited by Jeffrey L. Sturchio, CEO of Rabin Martin, Ilona Kickbusch, director of the Global Health Centre of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, and Louis Galambos, professor of history and the co-director of the Institute for Applied Economics, Global Health, and the Study of Business Enterprise at Johns Hopkins University, with a foreword by Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General of the World Health Organization. In this collection of essays, Sturchio, Kickbusch, Galambos and their contributors explore the ways in which the private sector is helping countries achieve universal health coverage and opportunities to partner with governments as they transition to universal health coverage. Stressing the many positive aspects of UHC developments, the book focuses on the new health economy and the sometimes controversial dimensions of the private sector helping countries achieve UHC. Looking to the political, economic and social implications of moving from aspiration to implementation, The Road to Universal Health Coverage points the way to the many opportunities ahead as companies continue to work with governments and civil society partners to help achieve UHC.
