Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages is essential to sustainable development. Significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality, but working towards achieving the target of fewer than 70 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births by 2030 would require improvements in skilled delivery care.

Achieving the target of reducing premature deaths due to incommunicable diseases by 1/3 by the year 2030 would also require more efficient technologies for clean fuel use during cooking and education on the risks of tobacco.

Many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many persistent and emerging health issues. By focusing on providing more efficient funding of health systems, improved sanitation and hygiene, increased access to physicians and more tips on ways to reduce ambient pollution, significant progress can be made in saving millions of lives.

The correct answer is C. 36.9 million people globally were living with HIV with 21.7 million people having access to antiretroviral therapy in 2017. Overall, 940 000 people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2017. HIV is the leading cause of death for women of reproductive age worldwide and is now the leading cause of death among adolescents (aged 10–19) in Africa and the second most common cause of death among adolescents globally. The worldwide incidence of HIV declined from 0.40 to 0.26 per 1,000 uninfected people between 2005 and 2016. For women of reproductive age in sub-Saharan Africa, however, the rate is much higher, at 2.58 per 1,000 uninfected people.

The maternal mortality ratio – the proportion of mothers that do not survive childbirth compared to those who do – has declined by 37 per cent since 2000. Nevertheless, in 2015, 303,000 women around the world died due to complications during pregnancy or childbirth. Between 2012 and 2017, almost 80 per cent of live births worldwide occurred with the assistance of skilled health personnel, up from 62 per cent from 2000 to 2005. In Eastern Asia, Northern Africa and Southern Asia, maternal mortality has declined by around two-thirds, but the maternal mortality ratio in developing regions is still 14 times higher than in the developed regions

The correct answer is B. Unsafe drinking water, unsafe sanitation and lack of hygiene continue to be major contributors to global mortality, resulting in about 870,000 deaths in 2016. These deaths were mainly caused by diarrheal diseases, but also from malnutrition and intestinal nematode infections.

The correct answer is C. 17,000 fewer children die each day than in 1990, but more than five million children still die before their fifth birthday each year. Despite determined global progress, an increasing proportion of child deaths are in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia; four out of every five deaths of children under age five occur in these regions. Children born into poverty are almost twice as likely to die before the age of five as those from wealthier families. Since 2000, measles vaccines have averted nearly 15.6 million deaths.

The correct answer is B. Globally, 32 million people died in 2016 due to cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes or chronic respiratory disease. The probability of dying from these causes was about 18 per cent in 2016 for people between 30 and 70 years of age. Also, household and outdoor air pollution led to some 7 million deaths worldwide.
