Global health has been an indisputable success story over the past 30 years. Action by countries, communities and organizations has saved millions of lives. Yet the international community is in no position to rest on its laurels. Global measures of health status have improved, but terrible inequalities persist and the world faces a mix of old and new challenges. This means the next several decades will be just as important—if not more so—than the last in determining wellbeing across nations.
