In the keynote speech entitled, “No one left behind, from MDGs to SDGs ”, Prof Eisei Kurimoto, Vice President of Osaka University explained the world trends changed in the duration of MDGs and future challenges in the duration of SDGs.  He said, ” Is the concept of being left behind really correct? Sometimes it becomes a line of sight from the top. I have seen plenty of problems in Africa that arise between development and keeping of old-fashioned living. It is true that the United Nations is the main key player for the achievement of SDGs, but the UN is sometimes ineffective. It is important that all stakeholders move forward one by one in complex values and problems.”
A new publication sharing the results of the Kobe Expert Meeting on health emergency and disaster risk management (Health EDRM) was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The meeting convened members of the WHO Thematic Platform for Health Emergency and Disaster Risk Management Research Network.  The meeting identified research questions in five major areas for Health EDRM: health data management, psychosocial management, community risk management, health workforce development, and research methods and ethics. Funding these key research questions is essential to accelerate evidence-based actions during emergencies and disasters.
