Abstract:
Access to quality healthcare is a fundamental need of a country’s citizens and lays the foundation for sustainable and equitable economic development. Over a last few decades, India has made significant progress on the primary healthcare front. A large section of the population still lacks access to these services. The study mainly focuses to assess the knowledge level of the respondents towards Universal Health Coverage. The study was conducted in 5 villages (Anandpur, Indarpur, Chukti, Narayanpur, Gukulnagar) of Kichha, Udham Singh Nagar District of Uttarakhand State. The pre-coded interview schedule and self-structured knowledge tool was used to gather the required information. 15 percent households from each of the selected village were included in the sample. Total 125 respondents were selected using simple random sampling without replacement. It was found that age and income level of the respondents were the significant factors that decide knowledge regarding UHC. Knowledge level of the respondents was found to be good.
