Achieving SDG 3

Policy Brief Series 2018


The 2030 Development Agenda and its 17 SDGs bring the spirit of Alma Ata Declaration back to life. Highquality PHC is critical to achieving universal health coverage (UHC), which, according to WHO, is the main landmark of SDG 3 and other health-related goals.

With this series of policy briefs, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s “Health for All” thematic group would like to add to the analysis of achievements and gaps still present on the road towards UHC and a comprehensive primary health care implementation.

ISGlobal contributes to this series with two briefs that analyse the role of a “Health in All Policies” approach as a way to implement a multi-stakeholder, coherent, and intersectoral approach; and a case study of cities as an example of how to include health in a different sector's policies, such as urban planning.
