These priorities include:

  • Addressing the social determinants of health
  • Achieving public health preparedness and ensuring an effective response
  • Strengthening health systems and their resilience
  • Preventing communicable diseases
  • Preventing and reducing the risks posed by noncommunicable disease
  • Ensuring ethical and effective health screening and assessment
  • Improving health information and communication.
