SDG 3 Good Health and Wellbeing
The SDG 3 is a universal and urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages by 2030. The goal, being adopted in 2015 is a follow-up of the partially achieved millennium goals.
Among others, this goal includes the reduction of the global maternal mortality rate, the eradication of preventable deaths of newborns and infants, the end of the epidemic of AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis, and prevention and treatment of substance abuse. The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve SDG 3 in every context.
