VOA Examines New World Bank, IHME Reports On Regional Health Challenges

The World Bank, in conjunction with the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), recently “released new reports outlining the health challenges facing six major regions,” Voice of America reports. “The bank says the reports will help policymakers develop evidence-based health programs after the Millennium Development Goals expire,” the news service writes. Timothy Evans, director for health, nutrition and population at the World Bank, “said the world is too diverse to have a one-size-fits-all health plan,” VOA notes, and highlights the ongoing health challenges in the various regions (DeCapua, 9/13).
