Adam--Excellent blog!. Your comments are right on the mark! Indeed, we have been working all along for a long time in different regions and countries pursiuing the three dimensions of UHC as you noted: expansion of coverage, standarizing the content of services and minimizing risks associated with out-of-pocket payments, and on the elusive quality dimentsion (structure, yes it matters, processes, the new battlegroung, and outcomes, still in the future) in service provision. A little institutional memory or a simple review of the literature will confirm the above. And as you suggested, UHC can be a "rallying cry for the goals of equity, financial protection, and quality of care." So let's move on remembering the past! Well done. Patricio
