In April this year our project collated and published a special issue in Somatosphere, on Universal Health Coverage and the contemporary renewal of rhetorical or concrete aspirations towards 'Health for All' entailed by UHC. The issue comprises 13 separate articles, with authors and collaborators from a range of institutions. Links to the articles are below - our thanks to the editorial team at Somatosphere, and to the many authors from beyond the project who contributed to the issue.

In this blog post, I describe some of my observations from the AHAIC and relate them to research I’m currently conducting on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in Zambia.
