Bending the Curve - Ending TB in the WHO South-East Asia Region. WHO, Regional Office for South-East Asia. (2017)

immage

Tuberculosis (TB) remains the largest cause of death and suffering due to any communicable disease among the most productive groups in the World Health Organization’s South-East Asia Region (SEAR). Nearly half of global TB cases emerge in this Region, which is home to one fourth of the total population. It is estimated that TB and TB-HIV co-infection caused 3 deaths every 2 minutes in the Region in 2015. These deaths were entirely preventable with proper treatment of all TB patients, including those infected with drug-resistant strains.

The WHO End TB strategy and corresponding Regional Strategic Plan to end TB targets reductions to the extent of 90% in deaths, and 80% in TB incidence by 2030. This is in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to which all countries have committed.

Remarkable Progress, New Horizons and Renewed Commitment: Ending Preventable Maternal, Newborn and Child Deaths in South-East Asia Region. WHO, Regional Office for South-East Asia. (2016)

immage

As we move to the post-2015 phase, the world has committed to new horizons in health and development. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cover the world’s most pressing economic, social and environmental challenges. Further, in 2015, the UN Secretary-General unveiled the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016–2030). The World Health Assembly endorsed the Strategy and its operational framework in May 2016. Incorporating and aligned to the SDGs, the Global Strategy has become the guiding precept for advancing health of women, children and adolescents worldwide in the next 15 years. The Global Strategy draws its purpose and power from the SDGs. The three cardinal objectives of the Strategy, namely, Survive, Thrive and Transform, portray the aspiration to not only end preventable mortality, but also to avert illness, ensure well-being, as well as usher in a productive and empowered future.

Health in the Sustainable Development Goals: Where Are We Now in the South-East Region? What Next? WHO, Regional Office for South-East Asia. (2016)

immage

The new Sustainable Development Agenda ‘Transforming Our World: the 2030agenda for sustainable development’ was adopted by the UN General Assembly in September 2015. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) reflect a significant change in thinking about how to accelerate sustained improvements in development – in general and in health more specifically.
Altogether, the SDGs more closely reflect the range of real world concerns that countries face, compared with the narrower agenda of the MDGs. It is a development agenda relevant to all countries, not just developing countries. There is a strong focus on equity.

This report focuses on the historic opportunity for the WHO South-East Asia Region to end the scourge of communicable diseases for good.
