Health is Everyone's Business is a United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) platform to address the Sustainable Development Goal #3 (SDG3) . It is envisioned as a collaborative initiative from which organizations can learn about strategies to engage in healthy practices, at the workplace, community level and throughout their value chain.

During the year, the platform has conveyed a broad group of leading businesses, United Nations partners, civil society organizations and academia across the world, to de¿ne corporate responsibility and accelerate the collective impact for health & well-being. The Nicholas School of Environment and the Health is Everyone's Business platform had been collaborating during this year to understand how businesses approach and manage health impacts across their value chain, their motivations to work on the SDG3, challenges, and ways forward.
