Current global health priorities, such as the targets of the United Nations (UN)
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are ambitious. Setting an agenda for the next 15 years,
targets have been established to drastically reduce maternal mortality and premature mortality
from noncommunicable diseases; end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and
neglected tropical diseases; achieve universal health coverage; and ensure universal access to
sexual and reproductive health care services, among others.
