The world population is estimated to increase from 7.4 to 8.6 billion people by 2030, and 97% of this growth is in developing countries — particularly India, Nigeria, and Pakistan. On average, 60% of the world population will live in cities in 2030 – ranging from 81% in developed countries vs 56% in the developing world. However, 94% of this urbanization will occur in developing countries, and more megacities will emerge, particularly in Asia.

Health infrastructure provides the necessary foundation for all health services—from vaccinations to chronic disease prevention programs to emergency preparedness efforts. A strong health infrastructure includes:
- A capable and qualified workforce.
- Up-to-date data and information systems.
- Agencies that can assess and respond to health needs.

Goal 3 of the Sustainable Development Goals focuses in on “Good health and wellbeing.”
The lack of capacity for governance of Ministries of Health (MoHs) is frequently advanced to explain health systems failures in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). However, realizing the goals and policies of the health system becomes possible by recognizing the indicators of good governance in the field of health and then the measures of the government to improve those indicators.
