Our added value to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Through our work, we contribute to achieving several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The United Nations has drafted the SDGs as a blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. We contribute directly to four of these seventeen Sustainable Development Goals.


SDG 3 – Good Health and Well-being

Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG3)

Simavi’s mission is to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all. Our holistic approach, and our efforts to make sure that no one is overlooked in the process, contribute directly to this goal.

SDG 5 – Gender Equality

Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG5)

Simavi firmly believes that communities benefit if women and girls have equal access to education, healthcare, work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes. That is what we strive for in our programmes.

SDG 6 – Clean Water and Sanitation

The United Nations has declared that access to safe water and sanitation is essential for human health and the environment, and for a thriving economy. We share this vision and include it in our work.

SDG 17 – Partnerships for the Goals

Sustainable Development Goal 17 (SDG17)

Because Simavi believes that the SDGs can only be achieved through powerful and meaningful partnerships, all our programmes include collaborations with partner organisations across the world.

Additional contributions

In addition to the list above, there is a strong link between our work and the goals formulated in SDG 1 (no poverty) and SDG 10 (reduced inequality).
