SDG 3 – Good Health And Well-Being

Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.

Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages are essential for sustainable development.

Significant progress has been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing child and maternal mortality, but achieving the target of fewer than 70 maternal deaths per 100,000 births by 2030 will require improvements in skilled birth attendance.

Achieving the goal of reducing premature deaths from non-communicable diseases by one-third by 2030 will also require more efficient technologies for using clean fuels in cooking and education about the risks of tobacco.

Many more efforts are needed to fully conquer a wide range of diseases and address various persistent and emerging health problems. By focusing on more efficient funding of health systems, improved sanitation and hygiene, better access to doctors and reduced air pollution, significant progress can be made to help save the lives of millions.
