  • Introduction

    In 2015, 193 countries of the United Nations (UN) adopted a global agreement consisting of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets to eradicate poverty, protect the planet, and ensure a sustainable future for all by 2030. This special issue welcomes papers, which address the health aspects of the SDGs (SDG3: Good Health and Well-Being) from policy-makers, educators, researchers and practitioners in various disciplines of academia and industry. The purpose of this special issue is to increase awareness of key research and challenges related to the implementation of SDGs concerning human health, and promote novel interdisciplinary approaches to tackle these complex global issues. Due to the integrated and interdisciplinary nature of the SDGs, papers may focus on one goal or a subset of sustainable development goals. Identifying and addressing the implications of synergies and “trade-offs” in achieving the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda is important. For example, how would addressing SDG3 (Health and Well-Being) influence SDG 1 (End Poverty) and SDG 6 (Ensure Access To Water)? Emphasis on the importance of effective multi-stakeholder partnerships to enhance health outputs and innovation in achieving the SDGs is highly recommended.
