Uganda national minimum healthcare package- a case study

The basic essential healthcare benefit package (EHB) policy interventions aim to optimize efficiency while extending coverage by increasing equity of access to the defined benefits. Many low and middle-income countries introduced or updated EHBs in the 2000s.

The UNMHCP is composed of cost efficient interventions against diseases or conditions most prevalent in the country.
