The UN SDGs speak to the complex interrelationships of social, political, economic, and ecological factors that impact physical and mental well-being. SDG 3 - the goal to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages - is directly relevant to our work with many other goals intersecting with the determinants of health.
CAGH endorses the relevance of 10 SDGs as being of particular importance to our work in global health and supports CSIH policy position statements developed jointly with like-minded partners.
We also seek to address the long-term impacts of climate change as a significant global health challenge and are designing the SDG Policy Dialogues 2021 series focused on the relationship between Health and the Climate Emergency.
