CSP29/DIV/2 - Director's Welcome Remarks, 29th Pan American Sanitary Conference

As we direct our attention to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and develop multi-sectoral plans of action, we must collectively recognize the need for a greater focus on human well-being and in ensuring that economic growth delivers progress for all. Our policy choices must be informed by an assessment of their impacts on populations living in conditions of vulnerability and on the different dimensions of well-being as well as their distributional consequences.
