Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
- TARGETS & INDICATORS
SDG 3 – Good Health and Well-being – includes 13 targets and 26 high-level indicators which address all major health priorities, including reproductive, maternal and child health; communicable, non communicable and environmental diseases; universal health coverage; and access for all people to safe, effective, quality and affordable medicines and vaccines.
SDG 3 is linked to the Health Target in South Africa's National Development Plan, which calls for a long and healthy life for all South Africans. Aspects of health and well-being are also captured in targets of several other SDGs (most importantly 2, 8, 11 and 13) highlighting that the health of a population is key to sustainable growth.
Visual Representation of SDG 3 Interactions at Target Level
Large bubbles represent a target whose improvement will also improve a target from Goal 3 (1) while small bubbles indicate targets where improvement will negatively impact on a Goal 3 target improvement (-1). In cases where no bubbles appear, no interaction is expected.
