Spain offers health aid to Libya
The Chamber is constituted as an Organism of support to achieve sustainable development goals.
Objective 3: Health and well-being
We have made great strides in fighting several of the leading causes of death and illness. Life expectancy has increased dramatically, infant and maternal mortality rates have fallen, we have reversed the trend of HIV and mortality from malaria has been cut in half. Good health is essential for sustainable development, and the 2030 Agenda reflects the complexity and interconnectedness of the two. It takes into account increasing economic and social inequalities, rapid urbanization, threats to the climate and the environment, the ongoing fight against HIV and other infectious diseases, and new health challenges such as non-communicable diseases. Universal health coverage will be critical to achieving SDG 3, which is to end poverty and reduce inequalities. New global health priorities that are not explicitly included in the SDGs, such as antimicrobial resistance, also require action. However, the world is not on track to meet the health-related SDGs. Progress has been uneven, both between and within countries. There is still a 31-year difference between the countries with the shortest and the longest life expectancies. Although some have made impressive progress, national averages mask the fact that some populations, groups and communities are lagging behind. Multisectoral, rights-based and gender-sensitive approaches are essential to address inequalities and ensure good health for all people. courses
