[Correspondence] Qualifying the promise of Universal Health Coverage

In his recent Comment (April 7, p 1342),1 Richard Horton underlined the importance of the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) campaign, promoted by WHO on World Health Day 2018. He also problematised UHC on two counts: first, by arguing that, although UHC might sound like a finite achievable goal, it is not so in practice, and second, by underlining that UHC is not sufficient by itself, but must be coupled to targeted political actions, including legislation and programmes that address specific national health problems, such as diabetes and safer water.
