Goal 3 seeks to ensure health and well-being for all, at all ages; and in all settings, including humanitarian and fragile. The Goal addresses all major health priorities, including sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, communicable, non-communicable and environmental diseases, universal health coverage and access for all to safe, effective, quality and affordable medicines and vaccines. It also calls for more research and development, increased and diversified health financing, enhanced health workforce and strengthened capacity of all countries in health risk reduction and management. Universal health coverage (UHC) acts as key driver for achieving all targets. Investment in all the health related targets in the 2030 agenda is a prerequisite as the health focus moves to contend with the double burden of long held priorities in communicable diseases, the unfinished MDG agenda and emerging issues such as NCDs and injuries.
