What does #GoodHealth and #WellBeing mean as a goal?
We have a couple of targets that we are trying to hit by 2030, the world’s major deadline. Meaning, if we hit them, we achieve the overall goal.
1.) Every child meets his or her 5th birthday.
By 2030, end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age, with all countries aiming to reduce neonatal mortality to at least as low as 12 per 1,000 live births and under-5 mortality to at least as low as 25 per 1,000 live births
2.) Cut in three amount of people suffering from mental illnesses.
By 2030, reduce by one-third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being.
3.) Ensure equal and fair access to medicine for all.
Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.
