SDG3 - Good Health & Wellbeing

In the year 2000, the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) introduced the concept of ICTs as a force for development with the Millennium Declaration resolving to “ensure that the benefits of new technologies, especially information and communication technologies, are available to all”21. By incorporating ICTs into the goals and targets of the MDGs, the UN captured the attention of both the public and private sectors, which were encouraged to find new ways to work together. WHO was immediately engaged, establishing innovative projects in every region to test the potential of ICTs for health, even in some of the most challenging settings.
