IMO Position Paper on Universal Health Coverage - Apr 2010

Ireland’s health care system faces a number of challenges namely that of access to services, inequity and sustainability. Recently universal health insurance has been a central issue in political debate. The IMO paper lays out the principles that should form the backbone of a chosen system of universal health care regardless of the model of funding as follows:

  • Universality - Access to adequate healthcare for all
  • Services that are free at the point of access
  • Equity of access
  • Solidarity
  • Transparency
  • Quality of care and value for money
  • Choice and mobility
  • Clinical autonomy
  • Efficiency
  • Affordability
  • Sustainability.
