SDG's in 2017
We understand that incorporating sustainability in our daily lives and economic processes is not (initially) easy. We also know that it is not impossible.
Together, we can achieve sustainable development.
Children, women, and teenagers die each year from easily preventable diseases.
According to the UNDP, 6 million children die before their fifth birthday each year. Everyday, hundreds of women dies from child-birth related complications. In rural areas, only 56 percent of births are attended by skilled professionals. AIDS is now the leading cause of deaths among teenagers in sub-Saharan Africa.
Health related deaths can be avoided through prevention & treatment, education, immunization campaigns and sexual & reproductive healthcare.
