5 ways education can save lives

Infographic of the week

The Sustainable Development Agenda compels us to work together beyond sectors to reach our vision for a better future for all.

Children must not only be healthy to learn, but they have to learn to be healthy as well.

This World Health Day we are calling attention to how linking health and education can save lives.
