GLOBAL HEALTH ROUNDUP

Poor Quality Health Services Are Claiming More Lives Than Ever Before

The Lancet Global Health Commission on High-Quality Health Systems launched a report showing that increased access to care is not enough to save lives, especially if that health care is of poor quality. The Commission goes on to share that efforts to achieve Universal Health Coverage will be wasted if poor quality health systems are not addressed, especially because poor quality health care claims more lives than lack of access to health care. Ultimately, the Commission calls for a renewed focus on people-centered quality health service delivery.

How Physically Active Are You?

A new study shows that more than 1 in 4 adults globally are physically inactive, putting them at risk for NCDs and diminishing their mental health and quality of life. The report, authored by four World Health Organization (WHO) experts and published by the Lancet Global Health, indicates that if this trend continues, the 2025 global target to reduce insufficient physical activity by 10 percent will not be met. WHO, in its Let’s Be Active Campaign, is calling upon all countries to provide environments that support physical activity and increase opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to be active every day.
