Health and Well-being
Goal 3- Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
SDG 3 aspires to ensure health and well-being for all, including a bold commitment to end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other communicable diseases by 2030. It also aims to achieve universal health coverage, and provide access to safe and effective medicines and vaccines for all. Supporting research and development for vaccines is an essential part of this process as well as expanding access to affordable medicines.
New Delhi: Health systems have an important role in contributing to and promoting gender equality and equity. Although committed to providing services indiscriminately, our health system might be failing at the same due to inadequate provisioning and access, which are hindering them from meeting these goals.
