Universal Health Coverage Day in Bangladesh


The James P Grant School of Public Health celebrated the second Universal Health Coverage day on 12th December 2015. A rally was organized to celebrate the day on this year’s theme “Health for All: Right. Smart. Overdue”. Participants carried placards bearing slogans which reflected this theme, including “Health for All is a right, not a privilege”, “Universal Health Coverage – every person, everywhere, has access to quality healthcare without financial hardship”, and “No one should go bankrupt when they get sick”. On 12 December 2012, the United Nations endorsed a resolution urging all countries to provide universal access to healthcare to their citizens without financial hardship. To commemorate this resolution, Universal Health Coverage day is celebrated annually on 12th December, in solidarity for health for all, everywhere.
