Giving Compass’ Take:
· With only 10 years left until the 2030 deadline, Alex Harris at Wellcome explains that we are not on track to achieve many of the Sustainable Development Goals. In order to make these last years a “decade of delivery,” world leaders have come together to create a Global Action Plan.
· What is the Global Action Plan and who was involved in creating it? What are the main goals set to achieve a “decade of delivery”? How can donors and philanthropists become involved?
With only 10 years left until the 2030 deadline on the Sustainable Development Goals, we are working with the World Health Organization (WHO) and others on a global action plan to ensure healthy lives and well-being for all. Alex Harris explains how.
The pressure is on. We’ve only got 10 years left and we need a plan. I know, you’re thinking climate change. But I’m talking about health and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Introduced in 2015, the SDGs are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations. They ambitiously describe the world we’d like to inhabit in 2030 and provide targets and indicators to help us know if we have succeeded. But they don’t provide a plan for how we’ll collectively get there.
In health, this is changing. There’s a plan emerging, and we’d like to hear what you think.
