What is universal health coverage?
A world where everyone everywhere can access healthcare without facing financial hardships.

Following #UHCDay, we are talking this week about #HealthForAll and what DOTW does to work towards a truly universal health service.

Did you know that DOTW offers specialist support for women, children, and families through a weekly dedicated service?
We do this because refugee and migrant women face a higher risk of domestic and sexual violence throughout their lives, and this has a detrimental impact on their health #HealthForAll…
More than 90% of the women DOTW supports have no access to healthcare due to a range of factors including the impact of poverty, the hostile environment and fear of accessing services, homelessness, chaotic living situations, and language barriers #HealthForAll

Following #UHCDay and as part of our week looking at Universal Health Coverage, what it means, and how we work towards it, today we are sharing work we have done to improve access to information on COVID-19 and the vaccine #HealthForAll
Since the beginning of the pandemic, DOTW has worked to improve access to COVID services, including the vaccines for people who have historically being excluded from mainstream healthcare services #HealthForAll
We are only safe when we are all safe.

That’s why we created an information hub, which has been visited more than 15k times so far. It contains internal and external resources that have been downloaded more than 80k times… #HealthForAll

It's #UHCDay!

The #COVID19 pandemic emphasized and exacerbated health inequities around the 🌍 . WHO calls on governments, donors and leaders to prioritize 👇

On #UHCDay, we must remind everyone that it's not just #COVID19 that’s killing people. It's:
-lack of access
-years of living with health conditions that haven't been properly managed because of their skin colour, ethnicity, or social group
We all have different health needs, but our right to health is the same. Health systems must be ready to provide the full spectrum of
services based on our needs, not our ability to pay.
That means #HealthForAll! Image
