World Report on Ageing and Health
The report looks at what the latest evidence has to say about the ageing process, noting that many common perceptions and assumptions about older people are based on outdated stereotypes. The report's recommendations are anchored in the evidence, comprehensive, and forward-looking, yet eminently practical. Throughout, examples of experiences from different countries are used to illustrate how specific problems can be addressed through innovation solutions. Topics explored range from strategies to deliver comprehensive and person-centred services to older populations, to policies that enable older people to live in comfort and safety, to ways to correct the problems and injustices inherent in current systems for long-term care.

Global Tuberculosis Report
This is the twentieth global report on tuberculosis (TB) published by WHO in a series that started in 1997. It provides a comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of the TB epidemic and progress in implementing and financing TB prevention, care, control and research at global, regional and country levels using data reported by over 200 countries that account for more than 99% of the world's TB cases. In this 2015 edition, particular attention is given to assessment of whether 2015 global TB targets set in the context of the Millennium Development Goals were achieved worldwide and at regional and country levels.
Health in 2015 - From MDGs, Millennium Development Goals to SDGs, Sustainable Development Goals
This report aims to describe global health in 2015, looking back 15 years at the trends and positive forces during the MDG era and assessing the main challenges for the coming 15 years. The following chapter describes the context, including population and epidemiological changes, and the economic, social and environmental determinants of health. The subsequent six chapters present the trends and challenges for the main health areas that are prominent in the health goal of the SDGs: UHC; reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health; infectious diseases; noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), mental health and substance abuse; and injuries and violence. Some chapters cover multiple health targets and, where relevant, refer to SDG targets that are in other goals. The final chapter reflects on the implications of the SDG for health.
Global Status Report on Road Safety 2015
This report shows that the number of road traffic deaths - 1.25 million in 2013 - has remained fairly constant since 2007, despite the increase in global motorization and population and the predicted rise in deaths. This suggests that interventions to improve global road safety are preventing increases that otherwise would have occurred. The report highlights that the situation is worst in low-income countries, where rates are more than double those in high-income countries and there are a disproportionate number of deaths relative to the (lower) level of motorization.
Quality of Care: what are effective policy options for governments in low- and middle-income countries to improve and regulate the quality of ambulatory care?
This policy brief aims to provide guidance for policy-makers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in the Asia Pacific region on actions that governments can take to improve and regulate quality of care in ambulatory care services. There is increasing evidence of the very poor quality of ambulatory care in LMICs. Current strategies to address quality of care in these countries such as accreditation have tended to focus on hospitals. But ambulatory care accounts for the largest share of out-of-pocket expenses in LMICs and is key to addressing the double burden of communicable and noncommunicable disease.
Achieving the Health-related Millennium Development Goals in the South-East Asia Region

The report also highlights the bottlenecks, the most intense challenge, and the constraints faced by each country in its strategic actions and interventions.
