Introduction

WHO embarked on 13th Global Program of Work (GPW13) for strategic direction in Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 (SDG) for health which is vital for the future of our world. The GPW13 states people continue to be susceptible to communicable diseases while the burden of non-communicable diseases is increasing. The WHO Constitution affirms the health of all people is fundamental to the attainment of peace and security and is dependent on the fullest cooperation of individual and States. GPW 13 is structured around the “triple billion” goal for three interconnected strategic priorities: Healthy Lives – 1 billion more people living healthier lives Universal health coverage – 1 billion more people with universal health coverage Health emergencies – 1 billion more people made safer (making us all safer)..
