Health and Health-related Sustainable Development Goals
Sustainable Development Goal 3 focuses on good health and well-being of all at all ages. It tackles crippling epidemics like HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and hepatitis, and promotes universal health coverage and health systems strengthening to support greater access to higher quality care. SDG 3 sets 2030 as the timeline for meeting targets.
Progress towards SDG 3 have been slowed by the COVID-19 pandemic which has created large cracks in global healthcare systems. The Institute's activities will leverage AKU's capacities to help draw together stakeholders to address these enormous challenges. Its focus will primarily be towards most vulnerable groups, including mothers, infants, young children, adolescents, and populations affected by violence and crises in low- and middle-income countries.
