UFH strives to contribute to goal 3 (healthy lives for all) of the sustainable development goals, enhancing access to quality health care services and access to safe, effective and affordable medicines for all. Within this context, Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is a global health priority with significant action required to progressively improve overall population health outcomes in low, middle, and high-income countries.
UFH believes in the guiding principle of long-term partnerships with institutions in varied settings to synchronize efforts and to address global health disparities on the path towards UHC. UFH cooperates with medical and academic institutions in both high-resource and resource constrained settings. This approach draws on the transfer of knowledge, capacity building and exchange of experiences shared by both institutions. UFH focus areas include health promotion programs, network programs, and integrated rural developmental projects.
