A Global Health Revolution
Since the turn of the 21st century, people in low- and middle-income countries have experienced a health revolution, one that has created new opportunities and brought new challenges. It is a revolution that keeps mothers and babies alive, helps children grow, and enables adults to thrive through and beyond their productive years.
The Urgent Task Ahead
Yet that same health revolution has left many people behind, particularly those who are disadvantaged by the circumstances of their births. The urgent task ahead is to sustain and deepen health improvements in all regions of the world while finding creative ways to support better health among people who still suffer from exclusion and deprivation.
