Global Action Plan For Health: Addressing Determinants Of Health - Key To SDG Progress
Health Policy Watch "A new plan to improve collaboration across 12 United Nations and multilateral agencies to support UN member states to reach 2030 targets on health includes not only the ambitious aim of reducing bureaucracy and increasing efficiency, but of working better across sectors to address environmental, commercial and social factors that harm health.
These factors, which lead to serious health risks such as air pollution exposure and unhealthy foods, as well as health inequalities such as gender discrimination, pose a formidable barrier to reaching many targets of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The new plan, rooted in national strategies and leadership, aims to address these complex challenges and accelerate progress on SDGs." (Photo: Statsministerens konto/flickr, CC BY-NC 2.0)
