Understanding Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being

SDG 3 urges us to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.” This encompasses a broad spectrum of health targets, from reducing global maternal and child mortality to combating diseases. Here’s a snapshot of global health in numbers:

These stats underscore the health challenges millions face daily, emphasizing the significance of SDG 3 – and the importance of us doing our parts to be healthy ourselves, and promote health and well-being in our communities.

The Universal Implications of Health and Well-being

Obviously we want ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities to live long and healthy lives, but health and well-being have a lot of broader implications. A healthy population is a productive one. Poor health doesn't only impact individuals; it strains healthcare systems, cripples workforces, and stunts national growth. Furthermore, with our interconnected world, epidemics in one region can quickly become global threats.

Strategies to Boost Health and Well-being

Individual and collective actions are essential in realizing the goals of SDG 3. Here’s how you can make a difference:
