Hi everyone,

This week, world leaders gathered at the UN General Assembly to discuss some of the biggest issues facing the global community. Many of these impact health, from climate change, which is raising the risk that infectious diseases will spread, to the refugee crisis and superbugs.

While that's a lot to tackle, there's also headway being made on some fronts—like the quest to save new lives. This week TIME told the story of a promising genetic testing technology that is helping babies with mysterious diseases get the treatment they need.

What are your biggest health concerns for the future? We'd love to hear from you at health@time.com.

Be well,
