The UK was an architect of the Sustainable Development Goals, one of which is to achieve Universal Health Coverage. Our NHS is a shining light and we have deployed British expertise across the world including during African Ebola outbreaks. DFID’s health programmes support developing countries to build resilient health systems that provide quality health services for all and are prepared for global health threats like coronavirus.
