World Health Statistics 2012

World Health Statistics 2012
  • World Health Organization (WHO). 2012
  • The World Health Statistics series is WHO's annual compilation of health-related data for its 194 Member States, and includes a summary of the progress made towards achieving the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and associated targets. Unsafe water supplies and inadequate levels of sanitation and hygiene increase the transmission of diarrhoeal diseases (including cholera); trachoma; and hepatitis. The report presents a series of regional charts and, for six indicators - including population without access to improved drinking-water sources and population without access to improved sanitation - the charts show the average annual rate of decline (AARD) since 1990 up to the latest available year, and the overall AARD required for the country to achieve the relevant MDG by 2015.
