Joint SDG Fund Head of Secretariat Lisa Kurbiel interviews Dr. Yun on the parallels of investing in people’s health and sustainable development. Indeed, investing in root causes of crises and instability is not only the logical way forward, it is also good business. Keeping people healthy is the most sustainable model for health care systems, leading to investing in health through grants and funds. Ensuring people have access to quality care leads to more inclusive and healthy societies, and by including all of society in investment decisions, we can create a new systems and institutions that are inclusive of all people. The Joint SDG Fund aims to bring the UN system into the impact investment space, connecting with investors, funds and philanthropists to mobilize financing to accelerate the SDGs.
