By 2030, everyone (100%) has coverage to protect them from financial risk, so that no one is pushed into poverty or kept in poverty because of expenditure on health services

2. Aggregate: The fraction of households incurring catastrophic out-of-pocket health expenditures.
3. Equity: The fraction of households among the poorest 40% of the population incurring catastrophic out-of-pocket health expenditures.
