The Lancet Commission on the future of health in sub-Saharan Africa

The final results of a 4-year project to analyse the challenges and opportunities for health in sub-Saharan Africa are now published as a Lancet Commission — The Path to Longer and Healthier Lives for All Africans by 2030 — led by African physicians, health scientists, and policy makers.

The Commission has nine key messages ranging from the creation of people-centred health systems to promoting stronger more effective regional cooperation. If the right policies are implemented, and if African leadership is truly empowered to utilise the human resources assets of an ever growing youthful region, unrivalled prosperity and health will be the prize by 2030.
