Every single data point represents a human being. Every case of a disease recorded is a person who became sick, who wondered if they could be treated, whose family worried about them. Every death, young or old, is a person lost. 

Every year, WHO publishes the World Health Statistics to show trends and progress in public health. The new Spotlight looks at some of the key findings, including top 10 causes of death and differences in health outcomes for men and women.
