Poverty and Tropical Disease


Sustainable Development Goal 1 aims to end poverty in all its forms everywhere. Eradicating poverty in all its forms remains one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Globally, more than 800 million people are still living on less than $1.25 a day; many lack access to adequate food, clean drinking water, and sanitation. While Sustainable Development Goal 3.3 aims to by 2030, end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases.
