dc.description.abstractInformation and communication technology (ICT) is key to achieving and measuring universal health coverage in Asia and the Pacific. Asia and the Pacific continues to face complex public health challenges, including widening social and economic inequities, escalating health-care costs, vulnerability to health systems shocks due to natural disasters and pandemics, and a changing disease profile with rising incidence of noncommunicable diseases. Changing lifestyles, aging societies, urbanization and greater population mobility, together with the impact of climate change, make the public health challenges faced by the region ever more complex. Recognizing that inclusive growth, sustainable economic development, and national and regional health security are important policy objectives that cannot be achieved without a healthy population, almost all countries in Asia and the Pacific, irrespective of their level of development, have embraced universal health coverage (UHC) as a pathway to greater national prosperity.en_US
