The Global Report on Urban Health: Equitable, healthier cities for sustainable development issued in March 2016 by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) emphasises the need for enhanced governance and leadership to achieve universal health coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
