Atlas of african health statistics 2016: health situation analysis of the African Region
AbstractWHO’s Atlas of African Health Statistics series is the most comprehensive and widely used source of information on the health situation in the African Region. It provides up-to-date information on the state of health in countries and covers critical areas of health outcomes; health services and systems; specific programmes and services, such as communicable, non-communicable, and epidemic prone diseases; key determinants of health; and progress on the MDGs. These data serve as baseline for monitoring progress on international agreed targets such as those of the Millennium Development Goals and the Sustainable Development Goals. The Atlas is produced by the staff of the African Health Observatory at the Regional Office with the contributions and active collaboration of the 47 countries of the African Region. The online companion to the Atlas can be found on the African Health Observatory portal (www.aho.afro.who.int) where users can carry out searches, perform analyses and download data for further work. The online atlas is developed on an on-going basis with new indicators and new data when they become available.

World Health Organization. Regional Office for Africa (2014)Foreword Health financing and social protection remains key elements of the health system in particular, and health development in general in the African region. Appropriate health financing and social protection mechanisms will improve access to services and enable countries to achieve the targets set out in both international and African member states commitments to the agreed objectives such as the Millennium Developments Goals (MDG) and Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
