SDG # 3 - Healthy Lives

Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  • 3.1: Mortality rate, under-five (per 1,000 live births)
    • This indicator measures the number of deaths of children under five years of age per 1,000 live births. It can be calculated by dividing the number of under-five deaths by the number of live births and multiplying the result by 1,000.
  • 3.2: Mortality rate, neonatal (per 1,000 live births)
    • This indicator measures the number of deaths of newborns in the first 28 days of life per 1,000 live births. It can be calculated by dividing the number of neonatal deaths by the number of live births and multiplying the result by 1,000.
  • 3.3: Suicide mortality rate (per 100,000 population)
    • This indicator measures the number of suicide deaths per 100,000 people in a given population. It can be calculated by dividing the number of suicide deaths by the total population and multiplying the result by 100,000.
  • 3.4: Prevalence of hypertension (number of people aged 18 or over)
    • This indicator measures the number of people aged 18 or over who have high blood pressure. It can be measured through surveys or health records that track the number of people diagnosed with hypertension.
  • 3.5: Prevalence of overweight, obesity and wasting among children under five years of age
    • This indicator measures the number of children under five years of age who are overweight, obese, or suffer from wasting. It can be measured through surveys or health records that track the weight and height of children.
  • 3.6: Coverage of essential health services
    • This indicator measures the extent to which populations have access to essential health services. It can be measured through surveys or health records that track the number of people who received essential health services, such as immunizations, maternal and newborn care, and treatment for infectious diseases.
  • 3.7: Number of new HIV infections per 1,000 uninfected population
    • This indicator measures the number of new HIV infections per 1,000 people who are not infected with HIV. It can be calculated by dividing the number of new HIV infections by the number of uninfected people and multiplying the result by 1,000.
  • 3.8 - Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all
    • To measure these indicators, data can be collected through household surveys and administrative data from health insurance schemes, health facilities, and health systems. These data sources can provide information on the coverage of essential health services, the proportion of the population experiencing catastrophic health expenditure, and the proportion of the population covered by social health protection.
  • 3.9 - By 2030, substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution and contamination.
    • To measure these indicators, data can be collected through health and environmental data sources, such as health information systems, environmental monitoring systems, and household surveys. These data sources can provide information on the number of deaths attributed to household and ambient air pollution, the number of deaths attributed to unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene services, and the proportion of the population using safely managed drinking water and sanitation services.
