SDG believes that the best manner to present patient attention is through uncompromising dedication to the Total Quality Approach which strives for uninterrupted betterment. SDG shall supply the necessary preparation and contributing environment for all the people behind the wellness attention bringing system — working squads of wellness attention professionals. WHO is the administration?
All people, regardless of social status, consistently rank good health as a top priority,1 and healthy people are critical to sustaining societies.
These issues were placed at the top of the global agenda, inviting international agencies, Governments, non-governmental organizations and civil society, private firms, and other stakeholders to come together in order to achieve the goals.
Nonetheless, as with many other global targets, alongside strengths and successes there are also challenges and weaknesses. Progress has been uneven, both within and across countries. Although chronic undernutrition, child and maternal mortality have fallen significantly, there is still much to be done.
Yet access to treatment needs to become more widespread, new cases need to be prevented, and stigma and discrimination reduced.
The MDGs encouraged specific interventions benefitting subpopulations, namely pregnant women and children under 5 years of age, rather than all people. Some countries, however, sought to improve indicators through investments in their health systems to support the entire population, which resulted in dramatic progress in the health of all people at all ages.
Other countries focused interventions on delivering health services largely to pregnant women and young children, and saw fewer improvements in the overall health of the general population.
A new agenda is needed to prioritize equity in outcomes, and address health systems in addition to targeting specific diseases. Further, the global burden of disease has shifted greatly in the past 30 years, increasing the need for a focus on health systems.
Non-communicable diseases such as stroke, cancer and diabetes are responsible for a growing share of both mortality and morbidity in both developed and developing countries. Even within households, family dynamics may result in some family members suffering from caloric or micronutrient deficiency, while others are obese.
Looking forward, we need a post agenda that can support countries in addressing all of these issues. Medical research has shown that health issues once relegated to the back burner play a much larger role in our overall health and well-being.
Mental health is one such issue. There is a growing consensus that we need to work more to reduce the stigma of mental illness and offer mental health services to people. Addressing indoor and outdoor air quality, water quality, and other environmental determinants of health is another example.
Tackling these issues is critical to safeguarding global health, and needs to play a larger role in the post agenda. We therefore recommend a post development agenda that both reaffirms commitment to the MDGs and expands beyond them to cover new issues that merit urgent global attention. The formulation of SDG 3—ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages—can easily accommodate such a broad agenda.
The current text, which includes numerical targets for child and maternal mortality, can revitalize action to complete the MDGs agenda. Targets addressing non-communicable diseases, substance abuse, and environmental health will raise global awareness about the importance of these issues and spur progress.
Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of the current goal is the target on universal health coverage UHC. This is vulnerable to the critique of being too broad and therefore difficult to attain or to measure. However, ambitious targets are often needed to inspire progress.
While the MDGs prioritized specific interventions for pregnant women and children under 5 years of age, UHC promotes healthier lives for all through investment in health systems.
There is a growing body of evidence that investments in health systems are key to better health outcomes. It supports increased equity in health outcomes, as it allows even the poorest people to afford needed care. It supports taking a life course approach by addressing health issues at all ages.
When properly implemented, it meets demands for primary care for all people, and supports promotive, preventive, curative, palliative and rehabilitative services. Finally, UHC can be implemented in such a way as to capitalize on social and environmental determinants of health, including behavioural choices diets, exercise, air quality, tobacco use, etc.
A focus on UHC for the next 15 years could be truly transformative for both rich and poor countries. It is vitally important that health improvement accrue to everyone, not just certain groups. Of course, setting global goals and priorities can only go so far. The real test will be how the goals are implemented, and how progress is monitored and evaluated.
Given the broad goal of ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages, Governments, international organizations, and other actors need to be pragmatic about how to implement policy and monitor progress.
Agreement on global goals and targets, as with all policy decisions, will inevitably be a political as well as technical process, even with buy-in by participating stakeholders.
For most people, thinking about health and health care is a very personal issue. Assuring the health of the public, however, goes beyond focusing on the health status of individuals; it requires a population health approach. Overcrowding in Greek island reception centres for refugees and migrants has made conditions for children there increasingly “dire and dangerous”, the United Nations Children’s Fund said on Friday, warning that “severe emotional distress” affects many and that self-harm is a “possibility”. Brazil (Portuguese: Brasil), officially the Federative Republic of Brazil (Portuguese: República Federativa do Brasil, listen (help · info)), is the largest country in both South America and Latin ashio-midori.com million square kilometers ( million square miles) and with over million people, Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous.
The tension between the political and technical has to be managed for goals and targets to become implementable, so that it is possible to track and monitor implementation. Discussion over what indicators to use and how to finance the SDGs is ongoing.
They need to be clear and straightforward, selected with consensus from a diverse group of stakeholders, and based upon existing data sources. New technologies such as mobile phones and remote sensing make it increasingly easy to rapidly collect and analyze high-quality data; the post agenda should take advantage of this.
We have been given an opportunity to establish an ambitious, equitable development agenda for the next 15 years. Global political processes are on track to deliver a meaningful outcome, which could be transformative for global health. As we move towards Septemberstakeholders must hold Governments accountable to fulfil their promises for a substantial agreement, and begin working together to implement the SDGs.UNICEF is committed to doing all it can to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in partnership with governments, civil society, business, academia and the United Nations family – and especially children and young people.
