WHO Director Tedros: World Must Redouble Efforts On Health-Related SDGs
Health Policy Watch "Health-related Sustainable Development Goals won’t be met unless global, regional and country efforts are intensified, WHO Director General Dr Tedros (...) declared yesterday.
“Progress is slow, we are not on schedule – we are behind schedule,” said Dr Tedros, speaking before the WHO Executive Board (EB) in a 27 January session on progress in health-related SDGs.
But he expressed hopes that a WHO-led Global Action Plan for Healthy Lives and Well Being For All, could help get progress back on track. The action plan, involving 11 other UN and donor agencies, is being drafted in response to a request by Norway, Germany and Ghana, to be presented at the United Nations SDG Summit in September."
