The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development presents an unprecedented opportunity for countries to achieve their development goals, especially those related to health. In the absence of a universal blueprint for achieving sustainable development, there is a need for countries to capture learning and share contextualized knowledge.
The Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Learning Platform is a collaboration between the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research and the Division of Health Protection and Promotion at the WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean. It is implemented by the Social Research Centre of the American University in Cairo.
The EMR-SDGs Learning Platform is both an offline network and online virtual space. The platform works to identify policies, approaches and interventions in countries of the region that contribute to achieving the health-related SDGs.
