Good health and wellbeing are essential to sustainable development. Although great strides have been made within key factors associated with good health and quality of life, progress is uneven globally and there is more that we can do. SDG 3 reflects the complexities and the interconnectedness of health and wellbeing, and as a global publisher we are committed to playing our role in advancing progress towards achieving SDG3 by both supporting researchers and being an active voice, promoting an interdisciplinary evidenced-based approach to all targets and indicators within this goal.
Collaborative evidence-based approaches to public policy and healthcare policy and practice are essential not only in addressing inequalities, but also in building trusted sustainable ways forward in which to ensure good health and wellbeing for all. Through the research we publish we hope to play our role in not only supporting researchers in both the publication and development of their work in this area, but also in enabling greater access to high-quality content to assist policy-makers, governments and humanitarian organisations, in making research-backed decisions to advance the international wellbeing agenda.
