The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed upon by the UN Member States in 2015, provide a shared blueprint for global peace and prosperity. SDG 3 aims to “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all”. In order to meet SDG 3, the world needs ~$70 billion annually on top of current health spending. Many countries face a multitude of different challenges in mobilising resources for health systems. This policy seminar will discuss what is necessary for South-East Asia to achieve universal health coverage and how issues of poverty, inequality, nutrition, education, clean water and sanitation affect the attainment of this goal across various contexts. The expert panel will elaborate on how issues of governance, economic growth, infrastructure development and demographic shifts must be considered in tandem with health delivery systems.
