April 6, 2018: World Health Day

World Health Day, internationally recognized by the World Health Organization, raises awareness of health for all humankind. The World Health Organization strives to continually advance their mandate to meet the needs of communities, and believes Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is key to the individual's and community’s well being. The UHC initiative aims to ensure that everyone, everywhere, can access quality health services without discrimination and regardless of financial situation.

Join the conversation and help bring greater awareness to UHC and how it influences and shapes both individual and community well-being using  #HealthForAll #WorldHealthDay #UAlberta
