Abstract:

For the global health community, 2015 is a year to celebrate progress achieved and prepare for the future. The past two decades have seen unprecedented gains in global health: the mortality rate for children under age five has been cut almost in half, access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV-positive individuals has saved 6.6 million lives since 1995, and maternal mortality ratios have declined significantly. Yet, as the deadline for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) approaches, developing countries face a host of persistent and emerging health challenges. This brief, prepared by the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project presents five ways to prepare for the future of health policy, taking into account the changing global health landscape.
