Good Health and Wellbeing is the United Nations’ third Sustainable Development Goal and one strategic pillar of the partnership. It brings together researchers across several disciplines, from the health sciences (e.g., NOVA Medical School, National School of Public Health, Lancaster’s Faculty of Health and Medicine) to the social sciences (e.g., NOVA Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities and Lancaster’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences). Our Faculties are research intensive and pride themselves on their engagement with their respective national health sectors.
“Ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing at all ages is essential to sustainable development. Currently, the world is facing a global health crisis unlike any other — COVID-19 is spreading human suffering, destabilizing the global economy and upending the lives of billions of people around the globe.” UN, 2021.
