Health

At-a-Glance

Achieving 'Good Health and Well-being' for all is the third Sustainable Development Goal. Health, however, is a transdisciplinary issue and goes beyond just 'medicine'.
Within IAP, activities relating to improving global health are dealt with primarily by IAP for Health - a network of the world's national medical academies and academies of science and engineering with medical sections. Currently there are 78 members. The goals of the IAP for Health are: to strengthen the capacity of academies to provide evidence based advice to governments on health and science policy; to support the creation of projects by member academies to strengthen health research and higher education in their countries; and to issue consensus statements on matters of importance to global health.
Principle thematic areas being dealt with by IAP for Health include: One Health and Planetary Health; Urban Health; Social Determinants of Health; Exploring Traditional Medicine; Education of Health Professionals, especially through leadership training and the Young Physician Leadership (YPL) programme; and Health Science Education.

Below is a list of relevant meetings, projects, press releases, programs, articles, statements, reports, forums etc. related to health. This listing does not contain all IAP website content; items are selected for inclusion based on – how recently they have been posted and - their popularity among site visitors.
