Unfinished Health Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals

In modern times, societies have become increasingly concerned about the impact of climate change and environmental changes on the future of humanity and infrastructure – including the intersection between health systems and sustainable development. The pursuit of a healthier, more equitable world could have the potential to contribute solutions to current challenges in public health. Despite progress in recent years, the health agenda remains unfinished. Millions around the globe experience lack of access to essential services, face malnutrition, conflict and fragility, adopt unsustainable patterns of production and consumption. Identifying areas that require change, and the resources needed to enact the Sustainable Development Goals outlined by the UN, particularly SDG3: Ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing, requires dedicated focus from pioneers in various industries.

Health disparities persist between and within countries, hindering progress towards sustainable development. Therefore, the idea of exploring novel approaches to healthcare delivery, examining the impact of the social determinants of health, promoting education and gender equality are fundamental. How does sustainability affect various disease areas, or perhaps, treatment plans? Are there other factors away from healthcare settings that impact health in the long or short-term? In evaluating these questions – and further lines of inquiry – Critical Public Health hopes to assist those working on the SDGs and on creating a more sustainable and equitable future by collaborating with esteemed researchers.

This Article Collection will solicit articles related to the following subjects. However, we welcome all submissions related to the umbrella topic of sustainable development goals and health:

  • The role of sustainability in various disease areas, treatment options and patient outcomes
  • Sustainable Development Goals and aspects of health away from healthcare settings (e.g., social determinants of health, nutrition, physical activity etc.)
  • Health equity and impact on Sustainable Development Goals in multiple disease areas
  • Sustainable technological developments available to patients and healthcare professionals
  • Suggestions for implementing influential Sustainable Development Goals on health-related policy
  • Variability in sustainability and health between countries, healthcare infrastructure, economic capabilities and geography-specific health challenges
