Records With a Cause

27 million out of an estimated 56 million deaths globally are now recorded with a cause, according to the WHO’s annual flagship World Health Statistics published yesterday.
That’s an improvement over the approximate one-third of deaths recorded with a cause in 2005, and reflects efforts to track progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The report includes new data on progress towards universal health coverage, showing improvement since 2000 in 10 measures of essential health service coverage—including HIV treatment and bed net use. However, gains in routine child immunization coverage slowed slightly between 2010 and 2015.
