World Health Summit: Taking Global Health to a New Level

World Health Summit: Taking Global Health to a New Level

What does it mean to take global health to the next level?

A new global agreement based on a shared vision.

A new global architecture that is coherent and inclusive.

A new global approach that prioritises promoting health and preventing disease, rather than only treating the sick.

Because health is not a cost, it’s an investment. It’s not simply an outcome of development, but the means. It’s not a luxury, but a fundamental human right.
