SDG April: Good Health and Well-Being

 

SDG 3: Good Health And Well-being

This  month Sustainable Development Goal the Local Peace Economy is working on  is Good Health and Well-Being to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all ages within our local communities. Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being is important to building prosperous communities.

The pandemic has shown that in rich and poor countries alike, a health emergency can push people into bankruptcy or poverty and most countries, especially poor countries, have insufficient health facilities, medical supplies and health care workers for the surge in demand. It has also come apparent that global pandemics requires a global response. First trying to control the virus, second developing a vaccine and third vaccinating people around the earth in order to bring the virus under control. Likewise to keep people healthy in local communities around the earth will also take a global effort.

It is going to take people in local communities around the earth raising awareness about the importance of good, healthy lifestyles as well as people’s right to quality health care services, especially for the most vulnerable such as women and children. In order to achieve healthy lives in all local communities concerted efforts are required to achieve  sustainable financing for universal health coverage. Local citizens have to tell their  local leaders, government, health insurance industry that they want affordable complete health care so people can keep their families healthy.

  • Donate your blood. Safe blood saves lives!
  • Walk! It’s good for the mind, body, and the environment.
  • Volunteer at a hospital. You can support its operations and increase the hospital’s human capacity and productivity.
  • Take care of your mental health. Meditate, talk to friends and family, and seek professional help.
  • Help rural or emergency areas with equal access to medicine. Not all of the people have equal access to medicine, especially in rural areas. Run a campaign to donate medicine that will be passed to rural or emergency areas.
