Document Summary: 
World Mortality 2019 assesses changes in mortality risks at the global, and regional levels, focusing in particular on the period from 1994 to 2015, the first two decades of implementation for the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD). The report reviews the progress made towards achieving the survival targets outlined in the Programme of Action and discusses how these targets were subsequently reflected in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and its successor, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It evaluates the progress made by regions and countries in raising levels of life expectancy at birth, focusing in particular on reductions in mortality among children under age 5, women in the reproductive age range, all adults in the working age range and older adults at ages 60 and above. The report also discusses the contributions of the improvements in survival at different stages of life towards the achievement of the ICPD survival targets.
