[NEWS] World Health Assembly Adopts Five-Year Plan for Advancing SDGs

第七十一屆世界衛生大會商定了一項五年戰略計劃,以促進可持續發展目標下的所有與衛生有關的目標,特別是可持續發展目標3關於健康和福祉。

該計劃確立了到2023年實現的“三億”目標:將全民健康覆蓋範圍擴大到10億人,確保更好地保護10億人免受健康突發事件的影響,為10億人提供更好的健康和福利。

世衛組織總幹事Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus預計,該機構將加強對公共衛生的重視,強調國家一級的影響,並改善人們獲取與衛生有關的知識和信息的機會。

The 71st World Health Assembly agreed on a five-year strategic plan to advance all health-related targets under the SDGs, especially SDG 3 on good health and wellbeing.

The plan sets a “triple-billion” target to be achieved by 2023: extending universal health coverage to one billion more people, ensuring better protection from health emergencies for one billion more people, and promoting better health and wellbeing for one billion more people.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus anticipated that the agency will increase its focus on public health, emphasize country-level impacts, and improve people’s access to health-related knowledge and information.

[NEWS] SDGs Gain Traction In The US, But With a Domestic Twist

由於全球孕產婦死亡率從1990年至2105年幾乎減半,美國孕產婦死亡率在同一時期增加了一倍。 美國的財富差距和不平等正在上升。 去年,由人權和極端貧困專家Philip Alston進行的跨國美國之旅揭開了許多其他問題 – 無家可歸者和獲得清潔,安全的飲用水,這些例子 -在美國的城市社區和農村日益普遍

一名在布魯金斯學會研究美國如何實現全球目標的高級研究員Tony Pipa說:「非營利部門對[全球目標]的熟悉度水平並不高。我不認為他們完全相信全球目標對他們有很大的價值,因為這是一種全球性的承諾,而不是他們可以置身事外。」。

As global maternal mortality rates nearly halved from 1990 to 2105, the ratio of maternal deaths in the U.S. doubled during that same time period. Wealth gaps and inequality in the U.S. are on the rise. Last year, a cross-country U.S. tour by human rights and extreme poverty expert Philip Alston cast a light on many of the other issues — homelessness and access to clean, safe drinking water, to name a few — that are increasingly common in rural and urban communities in the U.S.

“The level of familiarity [with the Global Goals] within the nonprofit sector, especially at the community level in the U.S., is not that great. But it’s less of a familiarity thing. I don’t think that they are completely convinced that there’s a lot of value in it yet for them, because you are seeing it as a global commitment, versus commitments that they can hang their hats on,” said Tony Pipa, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who studies how the U.S. approaches the Global Goals.

[NEWS] Private Sector Key To Sustainable Development Goals

香港數碼港管理有限公司董事局主席林家禮博士表示,商界與亞洲及太平洋經濟社會委員會(下稱“亞太經社會”)合作,正在為解決可持續發展目標提供融資解決方案,並幫助實現增長包容和減少不平等現象。

聯合國發布了一份關於發展融資的報告,該報告針對G20和世界銀行/國際貨幣基金組織春季會議(4月18日至22日)在華盛頓舉行。該報告警告說,技術的變革力量提出了複雜的道德,社會經濟和人權挑戰和風險。它呼籲各國政府進行補充投資(而不是依靠私營部門)來加強社會保護,並製定監管框架,確保分享技術和風險管理的好處。

Lee George Lam, chairman of the HK Cyberport Management Company and vice-president of the ESCAP sustainable business network’s executive council, said the business community is one with Economic and Social Commission for the Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and are working out financing solutions to support the SDGs and help make growth inclusive and reduce inequalities.

The UN released a report on development financing which aimed at the G20 and the World Bank/IMF spring meetings (18—22 April) in Washington. The report warned that the transformative power of technology raises complex ethical, socio-economic, and human rights challenges and risks. It called on governments to make complementary investments (rather than rely on the private sector) to strengthen social protection and develop regulatory frameworks that ensure sharing of the benefits of technology and management of risks.
