Supporting Well-being – Being Well Together
Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being is one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Environmental determinants of illness, non-communicable and infectious diseases, and antimicrobial resistance pose global health risks. How do tradition and culture shape conceptions of illness and healing, medicine and food? How can we include the social and ethical dimensions of health to develop better health programmes? And how can we contribute to exploring new medical treatments, improving public health policies, and campaigning for healthy lifestyles?
