The Sustainable Health Agenda for the Americas 2018-2030: A Call to Action for Health and Wellbeing in the Americas  represents the health sector response to commitments endorsed by PAHO Member States in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development together with unfinished business from the Millennium Development Goals and the Health Agenda for the Americas 2008-2017 and emerging regional public health challenges.
