[Comment] Longer and healthier lives for all Africans by 2030: perspectives and action of WHO AFRO

The Path to Longer and Healthier Lives for All Africans by 2030: the Lancet Commission on the Future of Health in sub-Saharan Africa1 is of great interest to the WHO Regional Office for Africa (WHO AFRO). This Commission by Irene Agyepong and colleagues expresses its conviction that a health system ensuring positive health outcomes for everyone, irrespective of socioeconomic class, gender, religion, or location, is possible and realisable in the African Region, despite many challenges. It identifies immense opportunities, which will foster health development if acted upon without delay.
