What is the THE  University Impact Forum: Health & Well-being?


Health and well-being are basic human rights and key indicators of sustainable development. Poor health threatens access to education and work, increases poverty, and limits personal and economic development. It is a main cause of – as well as a result of – poverty. Health is also affected by other factors strongly linked to sustainability and development.

At the inaugural THE University Impact Forum: Health & Well-being, leaders and subject experts from higher education institutions will convene to share research, ideas and solutions to address the key health conditions and diseases that impact on human outcomes around the world.

The event will also provide exclusive insight into the metrics and methodology behind the THE  University Impact Rankings with a focus on SDG3: Good health and well-being.
