Abstract Looking across the last two decades, the progress that the global community has made in health is impressive. Compared to 1990, this year, more than 4 million more children will live past their fifth birthday, and average life expectancy has increased by 21 years. For many around the world, access to life-saving antiretroviral drugs means that HIV & AIDS is no longer a death sentence, and thousands more women survive the natural act of childbirth, thanks to the skilled attendants by their side. At the same time, the development landscape for health is changing. Many developing countries around the world are seeing unprecedented growth of their gross domestic product, and half of the low-income countries in 2000 will be middle income by 2020. A growing number of our partner countries will reach total health spending levels per capita that enable them to cover basic health services for the first time in history.
