Health in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Basel, 23 November 2018. "World leaders are called upon to transform the world by 2030 through a rigorous pursuit of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal call to action to end poverty, protect our planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. SDG 3 is the only one containing a broad health-related goal, namely, “Good health and well-being for people”.

The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute and the Swiss Network for International Studies invite ecologists, epidemiologists, public health specialists, members of international and non-governmental organizations, civil society and more to review and discuss progress in sustainable development with an emphasis on health in the SDG era.

Experts from Basel, Bern, Geneva, Zurich and abroad will come together in Basel to discuss and debate how to shape, implement and accelerate transformational actions to reach the 2030 Agenda."
