BECAUSE TO MAKE SOCIETY & MAKE TOMORROW, IT IS FIRST OF ALL ABOUT A POPULATION IN GOOD HEALTH

 

“Pregnant woman, one foot in the tomb.” (« Grosse Femme, un pied dans la fosse »). While this expression no longer seems to make sense in so-called developed countries, it unfortunately remains relevant in some parts of the world. Indeed, many regions still face serious health risks. While child mortality under-five years old has declined overall, the proportion of deaths is increasing in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia: 4 out of 5 children who die under five-year old are from these regions. Significant progress has been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing the major causes of child and maternal mortality, but many additional efforts are needed to achieve the targets set by 2030.

Because for a more equitable and sustainable society, it is essential to enable everyone to live healthy lives and promote well-being at all age, this year health was at the heart of the Convergences World Forum. Experts gathered at the 11th edition to provide their solutions and highlight innovations for health today and tomorrow.
