[Correspondence] A premature mortality target for the SDG for health is ageist – Authors’ reply

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for health, adopted in 2000, targeted substantial reductions by 2015 in a few MDG-selected causes: mortality in children younger than 5 years, maternal mortality, and mortality from HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria. The World Health Assembly resolution on non-communicable diseases (NCDs), adopted in 2012, targeted a 25% reduction from 2008 to 2025 in NCD mortality at ages 30–69 years.1
