I propose an ambitious “1 by 4” plan. The 1 refers to a more responsive WHO in the Region and the 4 refers to the 4 strategic areas:
Addressing the persisting and emerging epidemiological and demographic challenges.
Advancing universal health coverage and robust health systems.
Strengthening emergency risk management for sustainable development.
Articulating a strong Regional voice in the global health agenda.
