PolicySustainable Development Goal 3
Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages is essential to sustainable development. Significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality. More efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues. More efficient funding of health systems, improved sanitation and hygiene, and increased access to physicians could help to save the lives of millions.
