UFH strives to contribute to goal 3 (healthy lives for all) of the sustainable development goals by ensuring all individuals have 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 that by establishing long-term relationships with institutions in varied settings, we synchronize efforts 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.
