What's the Goal?
To ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
Why This Matters:
Despite great strides in improving people's health and well-being in recent years, inequalities in health care access still persist. More than 6 million children still die before their fifth birthday each year, and only half of all women in developing regions have access to the health care they need.
Epidemics like HIV/AIDS thrive where fear and discrimination limit people's ability to receive the services they need to live healthy and productive lives. Access to good health and well-being is a human right. Everyone - not just the world's wealthiest - deserves access to the highest standards of health and health care.
