Title
Great expectations for the World Health Organization : a framework convention on global health to achieve universal health coverage
Author
Abstract
Establishing a reform agenda for the World Health Organization (WHO) requires understanding its role within the wider global health system and the purposes of that wider global health system. In this paper, the focus is on one particular purpose: achieving universal health coverage (UHC). The intention is to describe why achieving UHC requires something like a Framework Convention on Global Health (FCGH) that have been proposed elsewhere,1 why WHO is in a unique position to usher in an FCGH, and what specific reforms would help enable WHO to assume this role.
