The Transformation Agenda of the World Health Organization secretariat in the African region 2015–2020: Taking stock consolidating and stepping up
It has now been four years since I launched the Transformation Agenda of the WHO Secretariat in the African Region. The Transformation Agenda seeks to make the WHO Secretariat in the African Region more responsive, effective, efficient and accountable in providing the best possible support to Member States. It has served as a programme for accelerating the implementation of WHO reform in the African Region, and has also served to inform the efforts by the WHO Director-General to transform WHO, at the global level, into an organization that is better equipped to deliver improvements in health to the world’s citizens.
I am proud of the achievements we have made in implementing the Agenda. The efforts we have made over the past four years have yielded results on three main fronts: health security, universal health coverage, and a more ‘fit for purpose’ WHO in the African Region.
