UHC means that all people receive the health services they need while ensuring that the use of these services does not expose them to financial hardship (WHO, 2015 SDG)]. Equity is therefore inherent in the pursuit of UHC. However, in the African context, vulnerable populations have difficulty accessing health care. Moreover, many low-income countries remain dependent on international aid for financing UHC. Yet to date, few African states have met the Abuja Declaration’s target of allocating 15 percent of public investment to the health sector.
