Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being at all ages is essential to sustainable development. In the last decades, we made great progress on infant and maternal mortality reduction as well as in life expectancy increase. Still, there is much to be done. Achieving this objective requires bold action to have universal health coverage, reduce the spread of communicable and non-communicable diseases and the number of deaths caused by substance abuse, road accidents, pollution, and pandemics.
