Global Health

The Government is fully committed to implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Agenda 2030. Achieving SGD-3 targets, which deal with health, lies at the heart of SDGs 2030. A localization exercise has been completed in the country which sets baseline benchmarks and 2030 targets for health-related indicators.

Additionally, international public health security is one of the main challenges arising from the new and complex landscape of public health. Treaties such as International Health Regulations (IHR-2005) and Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) require core capacities that have not been developed at federal or provincial levels. Pakistan is the first country to complete the costed plan for IHR implementation. Other treaties Pakistan has signed are the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), Mental Health Gap Action Programme (mH-GAP) reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health, Family Planning 2020 and others.
