  • Targeting activities for one of the sub-goals to start immediately

Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Good health is essential to sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda reflects the complexity and interconnectedness of the two. It considers widening economic and social inequalities, rapid urbanization, threats to the climate and the environment, the continuing burden of HIV and other infectious diseases, and emerging challenges such as noncommunicable diseases. Universal health coverage will be integral to achieving SDG 3, ending poverty and reducing inequalities. Emerging global health priorities not explicitly included in the SDGs, including antimicrobial resistance, also demand action.

The Times Group now has flagship media vehicles such as The Economic Times, ET Now, The Times of India, Times Now, Indiatimes.com and many more that span diverse topics like business, real estate, topical issues, art, culture, economics and more.
