The World Health Organization (WHO), through the work of the Cluster for HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases, embraces the public health and research activities that make a difference to the lives of people at risk of, or suffering from, these diseases. This report looks back on the global progress made towards achieving MDG 6 between 2000 and 2015 in relation to all of the above diseases. It also summarizes global WHO recommendations and strategies for the SDG era, which are embedded in the sustainable development context, and sets out cross-cutting priorities. The report is designed to serve as a springboard for further discussion across the WHO network, with Member States and external partners.
At this time of transition from the MDGs to the SDGs, WHO is committed to working with countries and
partners to harness the power of global partnership, innovation and research to galvanize intensified action in countries and ensure that every last person benefits from our collective efforts to move towards the 2030 goals. We are confident that, together, we can put this fight on a sustainable footing, reduce the human suffering and deliver on our promise to the next generation.
