The Sustainable Health Agenda for the Americas 2018-2030. A call to action for health and well-being in the region

The countries of the Americas have come together in an unprecedented fashion to develop and launch this inspirational Sustainable Health Agenda for the Americas 2018-2030, and I applaud them. The Region continues to maintain its role as a trailblazer and global leader in public health, in this case by clearly stating how it will take up the challenges laid out in the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) approved by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015.
