From MDGs to SDGs

The United Nations Millennium Development Goals were 8 goals that all 189 UN Member States have agreed to try to achieve by the year 2015, and were derived from the United Nations Millennium Declaration, signed in September 2000. In the fifteen years following their implementation, great progress was achieved, particularly in terms out health related goals. The eight MDGs were revolutionary, in that they provided a common language to inspire global commitment to development. In the Region of the Americas, many countries reached or surpassed goals to reduce child mortality, control infectious diseases, reduce poverty and increase access to improved water, sanitation, education and infrastructure. 


The MDGs have been superseded by the Sustainable Development Goals, a set of 17 integrated and indivisible goals that build on the achievements of the MDGs but are broader, deeper and far more ambitious in scope. The shift from the Millennium Development Agenda to the Sustainable Development Agenda highlights the ability of global agendas to rouse global efforts

Publicación: Monitoreo de las desigualdades en salud

El monitoreo de las desigualdades en salud es una práctica que promueve la rendición de cuentas y el progreso contínuo de los sistemas de salud.  Ayuda a identificar y rastrear diferencias de salud entre subgrupos, proporcionando evidencia y retroalimentación para fortalecer políticas, programas y prácticas orientadas a la equidad. Por medio del monitoreo y el uso de datos desagregados, los países ganan entendimiento intuitivo en cuanto a cómo la salud se distribuye en la población, divisando más allá de lo que indican los promedios nacionales. Los datos sobre desigualdades en salud subyacen a las intervenciones en salud que apuntan a alcanzar a las poblaciones vulnerables. Más aún, ellos constituyen la base de evidencia para informar y promover iniciativas de salud orientadas a la equidad, incluyendo el movimiento hacia la cobertura universal en salud.

El Manual para el Monitoreo de las Desigualdades en Salud, con especial énfasis en países de ingresos medianos y bajos es un recurso amigable al usuario, desarrollado para ayudar a los países a establecer y fortalecer prácticas de monitoreo de las desigualdades en salud. El Manual explica en detalle los pasos del monitoreo de la desigualdad en salud, incluyendo la selección de indicadores de salud y estratificadores de equidad relevantes, la obtención de datos, el análisis de datos, la comunicación de resultados y la implementación de cambios.  A través del Manual, se presentan ejemplos de países de ingresos medianos y bajos para ilustrar cómo los conceptos son relevantes y aplicados en situaciones del mundo real; recuadros informativos proveen el contexto para entender mejor las complejidades del tema.  La sección final del manual presenta un ejemplo expandido del monitoreo de la desigualdad en salud reproductiva, materna e infantil a nivel nacional.
