Global health 2035: a world converging within a generation

Prompted by the 20th anniversary of the 1993 World Development Report, a Lancet Commission revisited the case for investment in health and developed a new investment frame work to achieve dramatic health gains by 2035. This report has four key messages, each accompanied by opportunities for action by national governments of low-income and middle-income countries and by the international community.

Key message headlines are:

  • There is an enormous payoff from investing in health
  • A “grand covergence” in health is achievable within our lifetimes
  • Fiscal policies are a powerful and underused lever for curbing of non-communicable diseases and injuries
  • Progressive universalism, a pathway to universal health coverage, is an efficient way to achieve health and financial protection
