Global Health and Sustainable Development Planning Project

Headed by Prof Liz Grant and Joanna Storrar: To help national governments prioritise the health and well-being of women and children, people with disabilities, those vulnerable through stigma or exclusion, and to strengthen the health care workforce 

This mapping project is directly related to Goal three of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

"Ensure Healthy Lives and Promote Well-Being for All at All Ages"

Project Aims

  • Engaging data: working with partners to collect, store, analyse, access and interpret data, and linking in country local data to and from health, education, industry, economy, and agriculture sectors
  • Providing fact-based achievement briefings: supporting the implementation of best practices in Zambia, Malawi and Rwanda in collaboration with national governments and country-level organisations
  • Engaging enterprise in broader SDG3 health agenda: fostering entrepreneurship among women and youth to create a sustainable, healthy business ecosystem and strengthen workplace health and the health workplace

Project Outcomes

A sustainable five-year collaborative plan to address key health issues in two or three African countries. This plan is aligned to the national Sustainable Development plans for each country and reflects country requests and partners’ specific expertise in global health
