  • Assess current gaps in service availability, service utilisation by people of different socioeconomic groups and living in marginalised communities, resource availability, healthcare cost and financing, policy, and governance for achieving universal health coverage (UHC)
  • Test new approaches to increase access to care, improve quality of services, reduce financial barriers in accessing services and provide evidence base for policies and programmes
  • Develop a roadmap to UHC with defined stages of progress and a monitoring framework to assess progress, including development of methods and identifying indicators
  • Establish a learning platform for UHC
