Further to his role in the WHO’s Consultative Group on Equity and Universal Health Coverage, Alex Voorhoeve has published three case studies to illustrate how the groups findings can guide practical decision making.

Alex Voorhoeve is a member of the WHO’s Consultative Group on Equity and Universal Health Coverage which, in 2014, published its report Making fair choices on the path to universal health coverageThe report outlines principles via which the difficult choices that arise on the path to Universal Health Coverage can be approached fairly and equitably.

Building upon the recommendations of the report, Dr Voorhoeve lead a group of authors in developing a set of case studies to illustrate how these principles can guide practical decision-making. This international group comprised academics and health policy experts, with representation from WHO, PAHO, World Bank, and Ministries of Health of Morocco, Ghana, Burundi, Malaysia and Thailand.

The first set of these case studies has now been published in a special issue of the Health and Human Rights Journal.
