World Bank leader Tim Evans on Universal Health Coverage In the Netherlands, quality healthcare is a given. We have health insurance, that we manage through an app on our phones and call a doctor or hospital when we need care. We live in a society in which we do not have to worry about the access to and costs of healthcare. We enjoy a privilege that the majority of people around the world do not have. That has to change. We believe that everyone should have access to affordable quality healthcare at all times. This is what Universal Health Coverage is all about. The Joep Lange Institute is proud to announce that, on June 20, Tim Evans, Senior Director of Health, Nutrition and Population at the World Bank, will give a lecture on the need for and path to Universal Health Coverage. How to get to Universal Health Coverage is a huge challenge. It will involve collaboration between the public and private sector. Political will is essential. As is sustainable financing. Mobile technology can be a catalyst. After the lecture, the moderator will lead an interactive discussion between Dr. Evans and the audience about the path to Universal Health Coverage. On Tim Evans:
