[Correspondence] Economists, universal health coverage, and non-communicable diseases

We welcome the declaration in support of universal health coverage (UHC) by Lawrence Summers1 on behalf of 267 economists from 44 countries. We are astounded, however, by the complete absence of tackling non-communicable diseases (NCDs) from this call for action. This is especially surprising given the strong focus on NCDs in the Lancet Commission on Investing in Health, chaired by Summers,2 and the cost-effectiveness of many NCD interventions that can be adapted and simplified for inclusion in suitable packages.
