Background: The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is characterized by much diversity in
terms of geography, society, economic development, and health outcomes. The health systems as well as
healthcare structure and provisions vary considerably. Consequently, the progress toward Universal Health
Coverage (UHC) in these countries also varies. This paper aims to describe the progress toward UHC in the
ASEAN countries and discuss how regional integration could influence UHC.
Design: Data reported in this paper were obtained from published literature, reports, and gray literature
available in the ASEAN countries.We used both online and manual search methods to gather the information
and ?snowball? further data.
