1. Wide shot, Donaldson and aid in corridor reading report
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Sir Liam Donaldson, Envoy for Patient Safety, WHO:
“We certainly saw some major improvements in the diseases that kill people, reductions in HIV/AIDS, reductions in mortality, tuberculosis, falls in maternal mortality and reduction in deaths in under-fives. So major changes in that respect, but beyond that many important things done to improve the health and lives of people around the world.”

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Sir Liam Donaldson, Envoy for Patient Safety, WHO:
“Firstly, are people getting healthier? Are they living longer, are they dying less often, are they suffering from fewer disease? So are they getting healthier? Secondly, is the world of health fairer? We know that some of the worse problems are concentrated in the poorest parts of the world, but are those differences in health between richer and poorer getting better? They need to be tackled and tackled with great force and commitment. So fairer is the second dimension. And then governments across the world, Ministers of Health, have a first responsibility of keeping their populations from all the threats to health. The infectious diseases, the elements of health care that can cause harm. Is the world getting safer in health terms? Healthier. Fairer. Safer.”
5. Zoom out, Donaldson and aid in corridor reading report
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Sir Liam Donaldson, Envoy for Patient Safety, WHO:
“I think one of the major achievements of WHO over the last 10 years, working with others, is to shape the future. And there have been some major policies that have been very important from that point of view. Trying to create a population around the world that ages healthily. Setting a goal of universal health coverage. Setting out a set of policies to ensure that health services around the world give priority to reducing the social and economic determinants of health and producing a new modern approach to valuing and supporting people with disability in communities around the world.”

STORYLINE
The World Health Organization issued a global health report called “Healthier, Fairer, Safer, the global health journey 2007-2017” describing and analysing key aspects of global health over the last decade.

The report was prepared by Sir Liam Donaldson, WHO’s Envoy for Patient Safety and the former Chief Medical Officer for England and it delves into areas of the world’s health, where progress would have been expected, was explicitly pledged, or was urgently needed.

Sir Donalndson said “we certainly saw some major improvements in the diseases that kill people, reductions in HIV/AIDS, reductions in mortality, tuberculosis, falls in maternal mortality and reduction in deaths in under-fives.”

WHO’s Envoy said the report looked at three dimensions – are people getting healthier, is the world of healthcare fairer and is the world getting safer in health terms?

Sir Donaldson also said “I think one of the major achievements of WHO over the last 10 years, working with others, is to shape the future.”

This Report documents many of the achievements of the last decade, as improved outcomes for mothers and children, breakthroughs in vaccine provision, measures to halt the rise of noncommunicable diseases, new frameworks etc.

It however points out that serious problems and challenges remain, many centered on the sources of inequity and on the burden of disease, premature death and disability suffered by the poorest populations in the world.
