In this chapter, Global Health Security and Universal Health Coverage are analyzed underlining the possible synergies and differences between them and the links to health, even as the two take very different routes and approaches. The actors engaged in each approach may often belong to the same entity, but they may also differ in terms of their focus, competences, and understanding of the societal needs. The two approaches are presented separately and then weaved together to demonstrate how access to care and Universal Health Coverage is in the self-interest of receiving countries and how improving care can support the health security agenda. Universal Health Coverage and health security narratives are interconnected and interlinked on multiple levels and in multiple dimensions, visually as well as conceptually. The chapter concludes by providing recommendations founded on the human rights approach common to both health security and Universal Health Coverage, in line with the Siracusa Principles.
