Forum programs well positioned to support new five-year strategic plan set by World Health Assembly

World Health Assembly delegates recently agreed to a strategic plan for the next five years, which is designed to help the world achieve the Sustainable Development Goals - with a particular focus on SDG3: ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing for all at all ages by 2030. The plan aims to achieve a 'triple billion' target by 2023 of: 1 billion more people benefit from universal health coverage; 1 billion more people are better protected from health emergencies; and 1 billion more people enjoy better health and wellbeing.

As the WHO Collaborating Centre for Evidence-Informed Policy, we're excited to support WHO member states' efforts to reach this 'triple billion' target by making available and supporting the use of the best available synthesized research evidence.
