[Comment] Three global health-care quality reports in 2018

Universal health coverage (UHC) is the central thread of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3. However, without improvements in the quality of the health system, UHC will prove an empty vessel and billions of people will not gain from benefits that could arrive from UHC. Instead, they will be victims of patient safety hazards, underuse of evidence-based care, overuse of inappropriate care, lack of patient-centred care, delays, inefficiency, inequity, financial insecurity, collusion, and corruption.
