The year 2020 was a devastating year for global health. The pandemic threatens to set back hard-won global health progress achieved over the past two decades – in fighting infectious diseases, for example, and improving maternal and child health.
In 2021, countries around the world will need to continue battle COVID-19. They will need to move swiftly to repair and reinforce their health systems so they can deliver these tools, and to address the key societal and environmental issues that result in some sections of the population suffering so much more than others.
WHO listed the following 10 global health issues to track in 2021;
- Build global solidarity for worldwide health security
- Speed up access to COVID-19 tests, medicines and vaccines
- Making Health For All a reality
- Tackle health inequities
- Prioritize science & innovation & improve data quality
- Revitalize efforts to tackle communicable diseases
- Combat drug resistance
- Prevent and treat NCDs and mental health conditions
- Build back better from the pandemic
- Act in solidarity
