Health 2020: Policy and Politics

The milestones of 2020 prompt us to glance backwards while also looking to the future.

As we usher in a new decade, countless pressing health policy issues are atop the global agenda, from vaccine access, universal health care, and pandemic preparedness to health workforce shortages and climate-related disease. These hot-button issues will likely have a big influence on the American presidential election and on legislation, policymaking, and advocacy everywhere. This is also a moment for milestones: the Affordable Care Act is celebrating its tenth anniversary, and the United Nations, with its many-health related activities, is marking its 75th. Meanwhile, initiatives like Healthy People 2020 in the US and Health 2020 in Europe are giving way to 2030-focused goals. All of that prompts us to glance backwards, and then don distance glasses for a vision of the future
