Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

Progress in numerous well-being regions proceeds; however, the pace of progress has eased back and will not be adequate to meet the majority of the Goal 3 targets. The pandemic is destroying well-being frameworks all around the world and compromises well-being results previously accomplished. Most nations, specifically underdeveloped ones, have inadequate well-being offices, clinical supplies, and medical services laborers to satisfy the need for basic medical care. Nations need specific well-being techniques and expanded spending on well-being frameworks to address pressing issues and secure well-being laborers, while a worldwide composed exertion is expected to help nations out of luck.

The following research projects have been specifically aligned to Sustainable Development Goal 3 and the aim to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. These projects and initiatives are examples of the University’s contribution to the SDGs.
