Five years in action: strengthening public health in the Region and beyond
AbstractIn 2012, Dr Ala Alwan identified five strategic priorities for WHO’s work with Member States, to be undertaken over the course of his five-year term as WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean. These strategic priorities, subsequently endorsed by the WHO Regional Committee for the Eastern Mediterranean at its 59th session, were: health system strengthening, maternal and child health, prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases, health security and the unfinished agenda of communicable diseases, and emergency preparedness and response. This document highlights the major achievements over the past five years for each of the five priorities, as well as other key initiatives. What needs to be done for the advancement of public health in the Region and beyond is evident. The way forward is clear
