One third of the world population lacks social protection against health risks, as the International Labour Organization (ILO) reports in its World Social Protection Report 2020-22. In sub-Saharan Africa, the figure is even over 80 %. The implication is that many people cannot afford to see a doctor or go to hospital. In emergencies, they have to take on unsustainable debt. Masses do not get the vitally important treatment they need. Universal health protection coverage would change matters.
