How Digital Technology is Key to Achieving Universal Health Coverage in ASEAN

“No one should get sick and die just because they are poor, or because they cannot access the health services they need. Health is a human right, not a luxury.”

Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

Director-General

World Health Organizaton

Digital technologies can eliminate the barriers in the iron triangle of healthcare, allowing countries to simultaneously improve

Access to care

Geographic, transport and provider shortage

Quality of care

People centered care, effectiveness of care, patient safety

Cost of care

Cost of care and efficient use of resources

Three technologies can have an outsized
impact in achieving universal health coverage:

Telemedicine

Health information systems

Tracking and notifications

All ten countries in ASEAN have committed to the achievement of universal health coverage

Five ASEAN countries have surpassed the global median of 65% population coverage of universal health coverage

In 8 out of 10 ASEAN countries, more than 1/3 of healthcare expenses are paid out of pocket by individuals
