Sustainable Development Goal 3, ensuring healthy lives and well-being for all, calls for significant improvements across the full spectrum of health outcomes — from better maternal and infant mortality, to eliminating malnutrition, to achieving universal access to health care. Achieving this goal — and indeed all of the SDGs by 2030 — requires the cooperation of governments, the private sector and non-profit actors across the globe. They will also need considerable resources, which is why finding innovative and sustainable financing mechanisms will be critical to their success or failure. Financing health care in developed countries is already a complex challenge: Finding sustainable solutions that have the capacity to finance the SDGs will require creative thinking to foment new partnerships.
