Despite progress in health outcomes achieved in the MENA region, this progress has been uneven and recently tested due to growing economic and political challenges. Furthermore, health systems in the region have suffered from fragmentation and an emphasis on curative services to the detriment of health prevention and promotion addressing social determinants as root causes of ill-health. Responding to the evolving health needs and providing quality health services requires, in part, an understanding of the changing demographics and reliable data on which to base informed decisions that can have a positive impact for those who are most vulnerable.
