[Comment] Disease Control Priorities, 3rd edition—from theory to practice

In 2013, the Lancet Commission on Investing in Health published the report global health 2035: a world converging within a generation.1 The authors showed how governments and donors could achieve a “grand convergence” by bringing preventable infectious, maternal, and child mortality rates to low levels universally by 2035, within a generation. Additionally, the report pointed to major reductions in the incidence and consequences of non-communicable diseases that can be achieved in such time, and that progress towards Global Health 2035 can be accelerated through universal health coverage (UHC).
