Sustainable Development Goal 3 or SDG 3 seeks to ensure good health and overall well being of all, at all stages of life. The goal addresses the major health concerns faced by people worldwide and assures access to safe, quality and affordable healthcare, medicines and vaccines to all. The goal also emphasises on more research and development and increased funding in the healthcare sectors for health risk reduction and management.

At the heart of the UN's functioning is the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals), which are urgent action plans for all nations. There are 17 SDGs and the SDG 3 focuses on good health and wellbeing of global citizens.  

The UN recognises that good health and overall well being is a fundamental human right and the wellbeing of the citizens is vital to the nation’s development. Poor health hinders children’s growth, limits equal economic opportunities for men and women, and increases poverty within communities.  

The SDG 3 has certain global goals to achieve through contribution and collaboration from all countries. These goals are specifically created to promote health and wellbeing for all. Let us look at what these targets are? 

  •     Reduce the global maternal mortality rate to less than 70 per 100,000 live births by 2030. 
  •     End all the preventable deaths of newborn babies and children under five years worldwide by 2030.  
  •     By 2030, put an end to epidemics like malaria, tuberculosis and AIDS. Also combat water-borne diseases, and other communicable diseases worldwide.  
  •     Reduce the premature deaths due to non-communicable disease by giving the patients appropriate and timely treatment.  
  •     Prevent and strengthen treatment for substance abuse, including alcohol and drugs. 
  •     Provide access to sexual and reproductive health care services to all by 2030. Also, integrate reproductive health into national healthcare programs and strategies.  
  •     Substantially reduce the number of illnesses, and death caused by soil, water, and air pollution and hazardous chemicals.  
  •     Strengthen the implementation of World Health Organisation Framework Convention on Tobacco Council in all countries.  
  •     Improve the capacity of all countries, especially developing nations, for early warning, risk reduction and healthcare management systems.

While the United Nations and the governments across the world are doing their bit to improve citizen’s health and promote wellbeing, as an individual, you too must share the responsibility and take necessary steps every day to keep yourself healthy and fit. Here are a few simple tips and tricks that you can follow to maintain physical and mental health and good wellbeing. 

Eat Right

For good physical and mental health, it is paramount that you follow a healthy diet every day. Make sure to include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your meal. Also, it is vital to drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated sufficiently throughout the day. Water is necessary to keep your skin and organs nourished.  

Be Active

To be healthy, being active and energetic is vital. If your work requires you to sit for long hours, you may be living a sedentary life. To make up for the long hours of sitting, and keeping your body active, try to do some household chores on your own. This way you will remain active and avoid health issues like body aches, and obesity.  

Keep your surroundings clean

As the adage goes, Cleanliness is next to Godliness, keeping your surroundings clean is the secret to good health and wellbeing. Always maintain a good basic hygiene like taking bath every day, brushing twice a day, keeping nails clipped, etc. This will help you avoid infections, and other diseases.  

Do a routine health check-up

To stay healthy and fit, you must monitor your health regularly. Make health check-ups a routine. This will help you know about your blood pressure, sugar level, dental health, etc and you can address any underlying issues immediately before the issue becomes serious.  

Change your lifestyle

Lifestyle habits are the biggest sources of many physical and mental ailments. If you have the habit of smoking, drinking alcohol, or substance abuse, you must stop these practices immediately and abstain from it. If you need, seek help, or therapy.  

Manage stress

Stress is one of the major factors that causes various mental ailments. Make sure to pursue a hobby, and take some time for yourself every day to do things that make you feel happy.  


Travelling is no less than therapy. Take some time to go on a holiday with your friends and family. It gives you a chance to explore new places, experience new culture, taste new cuisine, get closer to nature, and be grateful in general. Travelling helps you widen your horizons and promotes your health and wellbeing.
