Sustainable Development Goals


The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015, together with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. The Agenda emphasizes the need to “ensure no one is left behind”. The health goal (SDG3) aims “to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”.

The WHO South-East Asia (SEA) Region published an analysis of the status of universal health coverage (UHC) and the health-related SDGs in the Region in 2016 and 2017.
