Challenges Abound:

Diseases and Disasters: They loom large as causes of death and disability, affecting millions worldwide.

Conflicts: Devastating lives, conflicts cause death, pain, hunger, and psychological distress.

Climate Crisis: The burning of fossil fuels drives climate change, robbing us of our right to breathe clean air. Indoor and outdoor air pollution claims a life every 5 seconds.

Access to Health Services: While at least 140 countries recognize health as a human right in their constitutions, many fail to pass and implement laws ensuring access to health services. Shockingly, over half of the world’s population—4.5 billion people—were not fully covered by essential health services in 2021.
