Quiz for SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being

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 more effort is needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many persistent and emerging health issues.

The COVID-19 public health emergency has shown in a stark and unforgiving way that in a globally connected world, what happens in one part of the globe can impact people everywhere. Solidarity and coordinated, decisive and innovative action on a global scale are critical for the containment of the current crisis, as well as tackling other health challenges that affect the well-being of millions of lives around the world.

Correct! From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in all areas, including areas with hot and humid weather. Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body, and it can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth). People of all ages can be infected by the new coronavirus. The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by regularly and thoroughly cleaning your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub, practicing social distancing and following good respiratory hygiene.

Correct! According to UNESCO, over 160 countries have implemented nationwide closures, impacting over 87 per cent of world’s student population. Several other countries have implemented localized school closures and, should these closures become nationwide, millions of additional learners will experience education disruption. UNESCO is providing immediate support to countries as they work to minimize the educational disruption and facilitate the continuity of learning, especially for the most vulnerable.
