WKC has put forward a new research strategy for 2016–26 which focuses on acceleration of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) through innovation, particularly in light of population aging. Innovation can be defined very broadly as a new method or approach—whether it is within the scope of policy, systems, or technologies—and implies the translation of ideas to action towards a specific goal. In this context, the action aims to achieve the goal of progressive realization of UHC, or universal access to quality needed health services without people facing financial hardship.
