We all know how important it is to be in good health. Our health affects everything from how much we enjoy life to what work we can perform.
That’s why there’s a Goal to make sure everyone has health coverage and access to safe and effective medicines and vaccines. In the 25 years before the SDGs, we made big strides—preventable child deaths dropped by more than half, and maternal mortality went down by almost as much. And yet some other numbers remain tragically high, like the fact that 6 million children die every year before their fifth birthday, or that AIDS is the leading cause of death for adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa.
Significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality, and major progress has been made on increasing access to clean water and sanitation, reducing malaria, tuberculosis, polio and the spread of HIV/AIDS.
However, only half of women in developing countries have received the health care they need. An important target is to substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from pollution-related diseases.
We have the means to turn that around and make good health more than just a wish.
Good Health And Well-Being is more than just an apple a day.
Ensuring healthy living and promoting well-being sounds a lot like a promise people make to themselves only on new years. But it’s not just for people who want to get in better shape after too many holiday cookies-it affects us all.
