The coronavirus pandemic presents an opportunity for the human family to act in solidarity and turn this crisis into an impetus to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

“The United Nations – and our global network of country offices — will support all Governments to ensure that the global economy and the people we serve emerge stronger from this crisis,” said Secretary-General António Guterres in his recent statement, expressing his firm determination to prevent the crisis from derailing sustainable development efforts while laying out a vision for the affected to build back better.

Here are some examples of how the United Nations is fighting back against the threat of the COVID-19:

  • Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being
  • Goal 4: Quality Education
  • Goal 5: Gender Equality
  • Goal 6: Water and Sanitation
  • Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • Goal 10: Reduce Inequalities
  • Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
  • Goal 17: Partnerships
