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.

The UnitedHealthcare Global Difference

  • We understand that navigating multiple health care systems in foreign countries can be complex and businesses as well as nations are striving to simplify the health care experience.

  • We know that for your business to grow, you have to take calculated risks and convert them into global opportunities.

  • We see the many steps in each global traveler’s journey, from the clinic to the pharmacy, from a hospital appointment to a home visit, from emergency surgery to a regular checkup.

  • We understand that for health care to work, the traditional methods have to change. Technology and data need to drive innovation, enabling each of us to access proactive and personalized care.

  • We see the many different interactions across the entire health care system – in a way no other organization can.

That’s what makes UnitedHealthcare Global different.

We are with your people wherever they go – at home or abroad. Our single source, global solutions help optimize outcomes for your business by ensuring your people are better prepared, better cared for and better able to do the work they need to do, wherever they are in the world.
