Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing
The United Nations calls its 17 Sustainable Development Goals "the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." With a target of achieving them by 2030, the goals are all interconnected and address the global challenges we face.
Goal 3 is "Good Health and Well-being." As the UN puts it: "Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being for all at all ages is essential to sustainable development."
