World leaders and health experts handed 8 recommendations to Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO’s Director-General, that could save millions of lives and promote mental health. The Report was released on 10 December in Muscat, Oman at the WHO Global Meeting to Accelerate Progress on NCDs and mental health.
Every year, 41 million people die from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), 15 million of them between the ages of 30 and 69. Despite the many proven solutions, progress has been slow and uneven globally. WHO is committed to working with all partners to reduce premature deaths.
