- Take a holistic, life-course approach to people’s health with an emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention
- Accelerate progress where MDG targets have not been achieved and set more ambitious targets for the period to come
- Address the growing burden of non-communicable diseases, mental illness, and other emerging health challenges
