Statement by Margaret Chan at the 92nd meeting of the Development Committee held on October 10, 2015 (英语)

This is a statement by Margaret Chan, Director-General at the ninety second meeting of the Development Committee held on October 10, 2015. The World Health Organization welcomes the adoption of the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development and the ambitious vision for the world we want. A world where no-one will be left behind. Goal three of the sustainable development goals, to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, echoes one of the core principles underpinning the Constitution of the World Health Organization: where ‘the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition’. Achieving the SDGs will require all partners to pay special focus on building sustainable and resilient health systems in our pursuit of Universal Health Coverage, healthy lives and well-being. The lessons from the Millennium Development Goals, and most recently from the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak, have impressed upon us all that Universal Health Coverage, Global Health Security and the inter-connected nature of other SDGs are related to the capacity of a health system - and especially the personnel within it, to function effectively and to withstand shocks.
