Besides the pressure from the High prevalence of disease in Africa, the additional reason for focusing into UHC is a moral one: most people are suffering for something that is preventable by integrated health service delivery.
Accepting and integration of UHC in the national policy level is not enough, the national policies should be implemented into the ground. still, Africa is facing a challenge in spite of the national UHC police, with regard to poor health service, out pocket expenditure, inaccessibility of health service.
There is no single fit rode to succeed universal health coverage in Africa. All policies and strategies should consider each country local conditions. Even though, Africa is a highly diversified continent most of the problems are common to all countries. Africa should work to strengthen the foundation of universal health coverage temple; such as peace, good governance, and health financing. In addition, Africa should also give attention to strengthening the pillars of UHC temple such as Health information, health professional, medical products(health technologies) and service delivery.
