Excerpt
In May of this year, health ministers and leaders from around the world will gather in 1 Geneva for the final World Health Assembly of the century. This year's World health report -Making a difference reviews the accomplishments and challenges in world health and highlights their implications for WHO'S approach, priorities and work in the years to come. The world enters the 21st century wit11 hope but also with uncertainty. Remarkable gains in health, rapid economic growth and 0 unprecedented scientific advance - all legacies of the 20th cenkuy - could lead us to a new era of human progress. But darker legacies bring uncertainty to this vision - and demand redoubled commitment. Regional conflicts have replaced the global wars of the first half of the 20th century as a source of continued misery. Deep poverty remains all too prevalent. The sustainability of a healthy environment is still unproved. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights - now half a century old - is only a tanthing promise for far too many of our fellow humans. The HIVIAIDS epidemic continues unchecked in much of the world, and it warns us against complacency about other, still unknown, microbial threats.
