Millennium development goals post 2015- For sustainability focus on health systems

The benefits of an efficient, accessible and affordable health system are cross-cutting. It can be argued that a robust health system is at least marginally required to sustain the achievements of all eight MDGs. Three of the current MDGs are directly health related. Sustaining any achievements in these goals—reducing child mortality, improving maternal health, and combatting HIV/AIDS and other diseases—are dependent on adequate health systems. Countries that have made significant strides in maternal health, reducing child mortality and communicable diseases can only rely on strong systems to maintain these gains.
