GLOBAL GOALS
[Go Back]

THE 17 GOALS

In 2015, world leaders of the United Nations General Assembly agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality, and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society, and the general public, to work together to build a better future for everyone. As a social impact wellness company, we are dedicated and committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal #3.

OUR GOALS

Our goal is to service humanity by ensuring we do our part in advocating for good health and well-being for all. We believe health is rooted in the philosophy of caring for the people and the world around us. This is why we believe that together we can ensure healthy lives and well-being for all; we believe that you, too, can contribute to making impact.

Under each of the 17 SDGs, we see the opportunity as a company to create value for our business while creating a more sustainable and inclusive path to economic growth, prosperity, and well-being. This is our corporate social responsibility!

Goal #3: Good health and well-being: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.

Our number one target in relation to Goal #3 is to aid in reducing the rise of non-communicable diseases through our product, partnerships and service offerings. Non-communicable diseases are on the increase. Heart disease, cancer, diabetes and respiratory disease are increasing worldwide, costing trillions in treatment each year and pushing millions below the poverty line. Depression affects around 300 million people. Nearly 3,500 people die from road accidents every day. And infectious diseases such as malaria, TB, and HIV, still remain a challenge.

With our target focus of reducing the rise of non-communicable diseases, we work to not only advocate for the Goal #3 but also to link you with products that will help improve your personal health and well-being.

What’s the global challenge?

Both developed and developing countries alike are seeing a huge growth in the number of people suffering from chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and respiratory disease. These are now the leading causes of death and illness worldwide.1 In 2011, it was estimated that during the next 20 years, NCDs would cost more than US$30 trillion, representing 48 percent of global GDP in 2010, and push millions of people below the poverty line.

Mental health disorders, such as depression, are among the 20 leading causes of disability worldwide. Depression affects around 300 million people worldwide and this number is projected to increase. Fewer than half of those people affected have access to adequate treatment and health care.2

Infectious diseases remain a challenge in many regions. Sub-Saharan Africa is the hardest hit, accounting for 90 percent of malaria deaths, more than 70 percent of all people living with HIV, and nearly one-third of all TB cases.3

Nearly 3,500 people die from road traffic crashes every day. Road traffic injuries are projected to rise as vehicle ownership increases due to economic growth in developing countries.4
