The new 2030 development agenda and increasing globalization of health products development and supply have generated a need—and an opportunity—for WHO to adjust and strengthen its work in this area at all three levels of the Organization. WHO needs to ensure that headquarters, regional and country offices function more organically to deliver on development targets, and that health systems strengthening activities result in tangible progress for people everywhere. This new long-term framework for 2016–2030 aims to provide a broad vision and strategic direction to focus and reinforce WHO’s ability to help Member States achieve universal access to safe and quality-assured health products and universal health coverage.
