Resource Description:

Developing simple and sound measures to monitor progress toward universal health coverage (UHC) is critical if this objective is to remain high on the global agenda and receive priority attention from country policymakers. While discussions on UHC measurement approaches have been occurring at the global level for a few years, less attention has been paid to country perspectives on this topic until recently. To advance discussion on the availability, feasibility, and relevance of various globally proposed candidate indicators for UHC measurement – especially in resource-poor contexts – the Health Finance and Governance Project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development, conducted a case study in Côte d’Ivoire, a low-income country engaged in UHC efforts. The primary objective of this study was to gain a better understanding of Côte d’Ivoire’s monitoring capacity in relation to the challenge of UHC.
