Summary 

Estimates from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (GBD 2019) were used to create an index which estimates global progress towards universal health coverage (UHC) and specifically UHC effective coverage in 204 countries and territories in 1990, 2010, and 2019. The UHC effective coverage index is comprised of 23 indicators drawn across a range of health service areas and is meant to represent healthcare needs over the life course. This dataset contains estimates for the UHC effective coverage index, each UHC effective coverage indicator, and indicator-specific weights by location-year. Code used to produce the estimates is also available for download.
 
Results were published in The Lancet in September 2020 in “Measuring universal health coverage based on an index of effective coverage of health services in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019”.
