Abstract:

This report reviews achievements related to Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 6, which
was to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other major diseases. It looks at the key factors behind achievements in relation to reducing the burden of HIV, tuberculosis (TB), malaria, viral hepatitis and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), and the role played by WHO in those achievements. It also discusses the new post-2015 global WHO strategies, many of which have been endorsed by the World Health Assembly. In particular, the report discusses the key cross-cutting elements required to drive the ending of major infectious disease epidemics, to achieve the health-related Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3, and specifically Target 3.3 of that goal.
