Health and wellness

< < Back to Action fields

To achieve sustainable development it is essential to guarantee a healthy life and promote the well-being of all at all ages. It is therefore not surprising that four of the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are directly related to health (goals #2, #3, #4, #6). MDGs have successfully focused global attention and resources on specific and urgent challenges in our world, including hunger, mother and child health, HIV/AIDS and malaria. Much progress has been made regarding increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the most common causes of death related to infant and maternal mortality. Significant progress has been made in accessing clean water and hygiene, in reducing malaria, tuberculosis, polio and the spread of HIV/AIDS. However, like many other global goals, there are also future challenges along with strengths and successes.

These purposes are reflected in the following 2030 sustainable development objectives relating to Health and Wellness: 2_Zero Hunger; 3_Good Health and Well-Being; 4_Quality education; 6_ Clean water and sanitation
