The Bill for Health-Related SDGs

You’ve probably had a key question about the health-related Sustainable Development Goals.

How much will all this cost?
The answer is: $371 billion annually. That’s the estimated additional spending on improved health service delivery and universal health coverage to meet SDG 3 (Healthy Lives and Wellbeing), according to a new Lancet Global Health article by WHO experts and others.
The experts created 2 projections for health systems strengthening that by 2030 would either make good progress toward the targets or actually attain the goals. The ambitious scenario would save 97 million lives.
The modest projection had an estimated cost of $274 billion.
