Our Role in Global Health

Health and safety matter to everyone. It matters to every individual, their families and friends, and the communities where they live and work. Quality health care and security matters to nations, political leaders, policymakers, and to the health professionals who dedicate their lives to providing care.

At UnitedHealthcare, we serve people through every stage of their life, from childhood and youth through their working life, on their first and last global assignment and into retirement. What unites us is our mission: to help people live healthier lives and to help make the health system work better for everyone. We are dedicated to supporting better health and creating a better experience, all while making health care more affordable. We are humbled by our mission, and believe we have the opportunity to make a distinctive difference in people’s health and in their lives.
