Comparative analysis of the implementation of SDG3 (Good Health and Well-Being) in south east asia

Understanding the adoption of SDG3 (Good Health and Well-being) across Southeast Asian countries is crucial for progress tracking. According to the WHO, as of 2021, strides have been made, yet disparities persist:



Singapore: 

Leading the region with robust healthcare infrastructure and an efficient system, boasting a healthcare index of 78.6 (WHO, 2021).



Vietnam: 

Making significant progress, reducing child mortality by 75% from 1990 to 2019, displaying commitment to child healthcare (UNDP, 2020).



Thailand: 

Shows progress in combating HIV/AIDS, achieving a significant reduction in new infections, attributed to strong health policies (UNAIDS, 2020).



Indonesia:

Progress in maternal healthcare, though disparities persist across regions, with maternal mortality rates varying significantly (World Bank, 2021).



Cambodia:

Advances in healthcare access, yet challenges remain in rural areas, where access to essential services is limited (World Bank, 2021).



Philippines:

Steady progress in healthcare but facing challenges in addressing malnutrition and disparities in healthcare access (UNDP, 2020).



While each country has made strides, the disparities highlight the need for concerted efforts and targeted interventions to ensure equitable health access and achieve SDG3 across Southeast Asia.
