Good health and well-being

In our education we are using teaching cases, assignments and videos to highlight the issues as well as the business challenges posed by the SDGs, and confront students with the complexities of working with the SDGs. Here we share these materials per SDG, showcasing material that is most directly relevant. Explore the other SDGs.

Not everyone receives the precious gift of health. SDG3 Good health and well-being aims to fix that; to help the 30 million children still unimmunised against preventable diseases, and to improve poor healthcare systems. At the same time, life expectancy in developed countries is still increasing, uncovering new challenges and responsibilities towards the elderly. And mental health issues are increasingly regarded as an integral part of healthcare.

Reviewing the accessibility and scope of healthcare opens up opportunities for businesses and governments, but demands the highest standards.
