World Heath organization's top 10 threats for 2019
In full: https://www.who.int/emergencies/ten-threats-to-global-health-in-2019

HIV is also one of the listed items, but I though it was interesting and good to see reluctance or refusal to vaccinate to be highlighted. I defiantly agree its a clear health threat.

Air pollution and climate change
Noncommunicable diseases
Global influenza pandemic
Fragile and vulnerable settings
Antimicrobial resistance
Ebola and other high-threat pathogens
Weak primary health care
Vaccine hesitancy
Dengue
HIV

Quote
Vaccine hesitancy the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines threatens to reverse progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective ways of avoiding disease it currently prevents 2-3 million deaths a year, and a further 1.5 million could be avoided if global coverage of vaccinations improved.

Measles, for example, has seen a 30% increase in cases globally. The reasons for this rise are complex, and not all of these cases are due to vaccine hesitancy. However, some countries that were close to eliminating the disease have seen a resurgence.

The reasons why people choose not to vaccinate are complex; a vaccines advisory group to WHO identified complacency, inconvenience in accessing vaccines, and lack of confidence are key reasons underlying hesitancy. Health workers, especially those in communities, remain the most trusted advisor and influencer of vaccination decisions, and they must be supported to provide trusted, credible information on vaccines.

In 2019, WHO will ramp up work to eliminate cervical cancer worldwide by increasing coverage of the HPV vaccine, among other interventions. 2019 may also be the year when transmission of wild poliovirus is stopped in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Last year, less than 30 cases were reported in both countries. WHO and partners are committed to supporting these countries to vaccinate every last child to eradicate this crippling disease for good
