[Editorial] An African-driven health agenda

The first WHO Africa health forum closed on June 28 in Kigali, Rwanda, with commitments from governments to ensure universal health coverage. 700 delegates attended the forum organised by the WHO regional office for Africa to review progress towards the health-related sustainable development goals. The promises of universal health coverage chime well with the instalment of Dr Tedros as WHO’s 9th director-general on July 1. He has said “all roads should lead to universal health coverage”. Being the first African director-general, and having transformed Ethiopia’s health system, Dr Tedros’ leadership bodes well for Africa’s visibility on the international health stage and may translate into needed health gains.
