Description

The World health statistics report is the World Health Organization (WHO) annual compilation of the latest available data on health and health-related indicators for its 194 Member States. The report is produced by the WHO Division of Data, Analytics and Delivery for Impact, in collaboration with WHO technical departments and regional offices. The 2021 edition features the latest data for more than 50 health-related indicators from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the WHO Triple Billion targets. In the WHO Thirteenth General Programme of Work (GPW 13), all Member States are committed to deliver on the Triple Billion targets and to accelerate progress towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as informed by national data and health information systems. As the COVID-19 pandemic is unfolding and countries are responding, critical inequalities have surfaced, demanding global cooperation and concerted action to be better prepared to respond to this and other global health threats. With newly-confirmed COVID-19 cases at an all-time high globally, the scale of transmission elevates the risk of potentially more contagious, lethal and/or immune-evasive variants. The pandemic is entering a new phase characterized by a dramatic shift of its epicentre to the developing world, jeopardizing the world’s collective goal to end it and risking further setbacks to the entire sustainable development agenda.
