Abstract The Prince Mahidol Award Conference 2012 was held in Bangkok, Thailand during 24-28 January
2012 with the theme of “Moving towards universal health coverage: health financing matters”. The Conference
highlighted the importance of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) as one of the most effective
instruments that ensures human security and improves human development as well as fosters the concept
of all people’s rights to health care service. The Conference demonstrated that UHC was achievable
in many countries i.e., Japan, Thailand and others. It also highlighted equitable health systems financing
and other components of health system such as human resources, information system and other equally
important factors such as political commitment, government competency or civil society participation
that support the health system to achieve UHC. Last but not least, the Conference went successfully with
the hope to accelerate the movement towards UHC at the country level.
