Syria takes part in 71 World Health Assembly amid hopes of saving 29 million lives by 2023
Syria is due to take part in the 71st session of the World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of World Health Organization (WHO), which is scheduled to kick off next Monday at the UN HQ in Geneva until May 26.

Syria is taking part with a delegation headed by Health Minister Dr. Nizar Yazigi.

The 71st session coincides with the 70th anniversary of founding the WHO whose Director Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has promised an ambitious program that aims to save 29 million lives by 2023.

Health ministers and heads of delegations from 194 states will thrash out several salient topics, including the WHO strategic five-year plan including the “Triple Billion” health target: 1 billion more people receiving universal health coverage, 1 billion more people better protected from health emergencies and 1 billion more people enjoying better health.

Other pressing issues will figure prominently in the deliberations, including health emergencies, addressing global shortages of medicines, vaccines, as well as polio and rheumatic heart disease eradication. An item is also dedicated to discussing health conditions in the occupied Syrian Golan and Palestinian territories.
