At The Health Collab, we strive to empower communities by increasing access to basic healthcare, providing free general medicine consultant check-ups and more. At the core of our efforts is the United Nations’ SDG3.
The Social Development Goals
The Social Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 goals established by the United Nations to address global challenges and promote sustainable development. These goals cover a wide range of issues, including poverty, education, gender equality, and healthcare. SDGs provide non-profit groups and governments alike with great resources and data points so that their efforts can be utilised to the greatest effect.
Social Development Goal 3
SDG3 specifically aims to ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for people of all ages. It encompasses various targets, including reducing maternal and child mortality rates, preventing communicable diseases, and providing access to quality healthcare services.
How SDG3 Guides our Efforts
Pakistan has confronted numerous health challenges. The nation has been impacted by diseases, conflicts, and natural disasters, all of which have greatly affected the well-being of its people. United Nations statistics indicate that Pakistan continues to grapple with high rates of infant and maternal mortality, the spread of infectious diseases, and limited access to quality healthcare services.
At The Health Collab, from the very conception of our organisation, we have aligned our mission and efforts with SDG3. Located in Faisalabad, the primary goal of our medical centre is to provide a safe and inviting space for individuals who would otherwise struggle to afford and access basic medical assistance. Healthcare is a fundamental right and should be accessible to all, regardless of their financial situation or location.
The provision of free basic medical supplies is a crucial aspect of our work. This enables us to address seasonal diseases promptly, such as malaria, which remains one of the leading causes of death in Pakistan. By providing accessible treatment, we strive to ensure that underprivileged patients receive the critical care they desperately need, helping to empower the community at large.
Collaborating for a Healthier Future
To address the complex challenges outlined in SDG3, collaboration is key. By working together with the community, we can create synergies, share best practices, and amplify our collective impact, contributing to the achievement of SDG3 on a global scale.
By investing in accessible healthcare, we can reduce the health risks of communities and reduce the burden of health problems on society at large.
At The Health Collab, we’re working to empower Faisalabad’s community to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. We are committed to providing compassionate care to all who need it.
