World Health Day 2022: Science, technology, and innovation help improve health in the least developed countries
Themed “our planet, our health”, World Health Day 2022 emphasizes the interdependence between the health of the planet and human health. Poor environmental conditions, including climate change, claim 13 million lives every year. Polluted air, water and food have seriously compromised people’s health globally. This day calls for urgent actions to keep humans and the planet healthy and create societies focused on wellbeing.
At the Technology Bank, we believe science, technology and innovation are the keys to achieving sustainable development in the world’s 46 least developed countries, including improving their health systems and mitigating negative environmental impacts that jeopardize people’s health.
Through our programmes, we dedicate ourselves to contributing to sustainable access to health technology (SDG3), climate change mitigation (SDG 6, 7, 13) and strategic partnerships and advocacy (SDG17) to put the wellbeing of the people in the least developed countries in the forefront of the development dialogues and actions.
