World Health Statistics 2017 - Monitoring Health for the SDGs

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the world’s first comprehensive blueprint for sustainable development. Launched at the end of 2015, this Agenda frames health and well-being as both outcomes and foundations of social inclusion, poverty reduction and environmental protection. From a health perspective, development can be said to be “sustainable” when resources – natural and manufactured – are managed by and for all individuals in ways which support the health and well-being of present and future generations .
