[Comment] Addressing the fragmentation of global health: the Lancet Commission on synergies between universal health coverage, health security, and health promotion

Global health is fragmented. Many stakeholders pursue their own agenda while neglecting other important goals for global health. Some global health actors, for example, focus on strengthening health security without attention to universal health coverage (UHC), primary health care (PHC), and population-based health promotion. Prevention is a key part of PHC and UHC, but efforts to ensure PHC or make progress towards UHC often do not include population-based prevention efforts. Proponents often use broad definitions of their agenda in declarations and statements, while applying much narrower definitions in practice.
