Chapter 3 describes the greatest challenges facing countries in sub-Saharan Africa. It highlights the Millennium Development Goals against the background of the whole range of issues that need to be confronted by health leaders. It sets the scene for two compelling chapters written by leaders in Uganda and Malawi about their country’s achievements. These are complemented by an authoritative account by Dr Luis Sambo, the WHO Regional Director, of the state of health and healthcare in Africa.
