Description

In June 2016, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a public workshop titled "Engaging the Private Sector and Developing Partnerships to Advance Health and the Sustainable Development Goals". Recognizing the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in setting global development priorities for the next 15 years, the centrality of health across all of the goals, and the need for cross-sectoral efforts to make significant progress, the objectives of the workshop were to: (1) clarify the central role of health in sustainable economic and social development, (2) clarify the value of private-sector engagement in advancing health and the SDGs, (3) highlight business strategies and models for engagement in the SDGs, and (4) discuss opportunities and overcoming barriers to advance the goals. This publication summarizes and highlights the messages and discussions that emerged from the individual speakers’ presentations and panel discussions.
