It has been three years since world leaders committed to one of the boldest goals ever set in global public health: achieving universal health coverage by 2030 .As I, along with many others, have come to realize, success depends on first overcoming one of the most significant challenges in health: overly fragmented approaches to delivering care.The best way for countries to achieve a more integrated approach is to strengthen primary care, which is most people's first point of contact with the health system. Primary-care providers can address more than 80 percent of health needs. National leaders and public health officials need to know all of this and more in order to identify weaknesses in the primary-care system and target areas for improvement.With Vital Signs Profiles, they can quickly access information on primary care that is both useful and easy to understand.As I begin to reach out to African leaders one by one, I look forward to the day when we will have achieved universal health coverage for the world's 7.7 billion people.
