Sustainability challenge and related SDGs:
From birth to adulthood to the golden years of life – in all stages of life, humans want to survive and thrive. This cannot be achieved without a functioning #HealthInfrastructure, which in a narrower sense includes various health facilities, health professionals, health care processes and drug supply as well as the financing through health insurances.
Ensuring global health care for all remains a global challenge: In developing countries as well as in countries with a good to very good #HealthInfrastructure, the health care system must adapt to changing societal conditions, such as people living longer while maintaining a more active lifestyle for longer; the tendency to have children later in life or better chances to survive communicable and non-communicable diseases, malnutrition and injuries. One study found that worldwide an estimated 8.6 million people still die from causes that could be prevented with public health coverage and strong health systems.
Keeping a diverse society healthy – regardless of social class (SDG 1), gender, sexuality or ethnic background (SDG 10) – plays an important role in the development of sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11) and is a prerequisite for achieving SDG 3 “Health and well-being”.
