GOOD HEALTH & WELL BEING

Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

SDGoal 3 Good Health & Well-Being :: Projects for the Sustainable Development Goals Impact Awards 2019

Good health is essential to sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda reflects the complexity and “interconnectedness” of the two. What are you trying to say here? It takes into account widening economic and social inequalities, rapid urbanization, threats to the climate and the environment, the continuing burden of HIV and other infectious diseases, and emerging challenges such as noncommunicable diseases. Universal health coverage will be integral to achieving SDG 3, ending poverty and reducing inequalities. Emerging global health priorities not explicitly included in the SDGs, including antimicrobial resistance, also demand action.

But the world is off-track to achieve the health-related SDGs. Progress has been uneven, both between and within countries. There’s a 31-year gap between the countries with the shortest and longest life expectancies. And while some countries have made impressive gains, national averages hide that many are being left behind. Multisectoral, rights-based and gender-sensitive approaches are essential to address inequalities and to build good health for all.
