Bhutan has shown us that when dedicated men and women come together under committed leadership, they can achieve their goals, surely and convincingly. Through visionary leadership and strategic planning, the country has built a fortress against measles, far in advance of the targets set in September 2013, to eliminate measles by 2020. Bhutan is a country that measures success through the happiness of its people. Ensuring good health is, therefore, germane to its policy.
