Mapping the Road to Better Health

GHC created the infographic Mapping the Road to Better Health to illustrate the relationship between the health Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to demonstrate the breadth of the SDGs in promoting good health. If you chose to print the graphic, we recommend using 11 inch by 17 inch paper. We hope you find it useful! 

GLOBAL HEALTH ROUNDUP

World Malaria Day
World Malaria Day is April 25 and for this occasion, the ACT Consortium is releasing toolkits for malaria endemic regions. Twenty-five studies were conducted in ten countries to provide essential information  for populations affected by malaria. The toolkits will include information on rapid diagnostic tests, safety of ACTs in people living with HIV, and the risk of poor quality ACTs. If you are interested in using the toolkits or contributing content to them, please e-mail the ACT Consortium.

Measurement Framework for the SDGs
The measurement framework for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is almost finalized. However, the elimination of two indicators for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) means that governments won’t be asked to track coverage of health services and financial protection. As a result, it will be impossible to hold them accountable for achieving UHC. 
 
Core Group Spring Conference
The Core Group is having its Spring conference starting on May 18 in Portland, Oregon. The general theme is Advancing Health for All through Multi-dimensional Approaches. This week-long conference includes a pre-session, keynote speakers, plenaries, concurrent sessions, and working group time. Registration is open now.
 
GHTC’s Video Series 
GHC member, Global Health Technologies Coalition (GHTC), recently launched a four-part video series exploring the role of global health innovation in achieving the SDGs. The series features interviews with global health thought leaders, advocates, researchers, product developers, and policymakers filmed on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.
