The recently adopted Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development is of unprecedented scope and ambition, applicable to all countries, and hence going well beyond the MDGs. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including one specific health goal, strive to balance development thinking around the protection of natural resources, social development and equity, and global economic growth. Health has a central place as a major contributor to and beneficiary of sustainable development policies. To foster integration of the goals, multisectoral approaches and collaboration are needed. There are a number of experiences with important results and lessons learnt to be shared. This knowhow must be systematically tapped to develop and implement holistic multi-sectoral policies and strategies, research programs and plans of action for the different health and other development targets.
