The World Health Statistics Report 2021, published by World Health Organization, sheds light on the human toll and impact of COVID-19, highlighting the importance of tracking inequalities and the urgency to accelerate progress to get back on track and recover equitably with the support of robust data and health information systems.

The Report indicates that persisting inequalities continue to impact population health and therefore recommends the need to focus on the equitable distribution and access of quality healthcare services across the globe.
