WHO’s Draft Program Of Work Outlines Agency’s Priorities, Raises Questions About Strategies, Devex Analysis Says

“…As per the draft [of WHO’s 13th General Program of Work], published on November 1, the WHO identified three overarching priorities with accompanying targets: one billion more people with essential health services coverage; one billion more people made safer; and one billion lives improved. The latter covers a more specific list of targets based on the Sustainable Development Goals. … But the document is very much a work in progress. Far from being final, the draft GPW is only the beginning of a more detailed discussion on the WHO’s priorities and direction…” (Ravelo, 11/8).
