SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being

Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.

Over the last 15 years, the number of childhood deaths has been cut in half.  This proves that it is possible to win the fight against almost every disease. Still, we are spending an astonishing amount of money and resources on treating illnesses that are surprisingly easy to prevent. Goal 3 promotes healthy lifestyles, preventive measures and modern, efficient healthcare for everyone.

Students from York University’s Faculty of Health took part in an innovative simulation event that plunged them into the heart of the World Health Organization’s World Health Assembly. This experiential education simulation was created by Dr. Firas Ahmed Khalid, a physician and assistant professor of global health, to give students an opportunity to participate in creating collaborative governance approaches to multi-sectoral and multi-jurisdictional global challenges.
