Worldbank & WHO

Universal Health Coverage

In December 2021, the WHO and the Worldbank published a joint report titled “Tracking Universal Health Coverage: 2021 Global Monitoring Report”. The report analyses progress towards and impediments to achieving universal health coverage, as stated in the Sustainable Development Goals - an aim that has been even more difficult to reach since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The current report provides a monitoring of trends and patterns in universal health coverage across countries. Within the report, SHARE data is used to analyse unmet healthcare needs among persons aged 60 and older in the WHO European region.
