Health

Society

The Health issue draws a picture of a universal and financially sustainable system that provides secure and affordable access to quality health care for all. The system helps people to stay healthy throughout their lives by promoting healthy lifestyles, incentivizing healthy and balanced nutrition, and developing an environment and infrastructure that facilitate population health. The Health issue is strongly aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals 2 and 3.

As proxies to measure the state of this issue, the GAPFRAME includes five publicly available indicators: child survival (EPI, 2014) representing probability of a child surviving its fifth birthday, sufficient food (SSI; 2014) representing the amount of undernourished people as a percentage of total population, obesity rate (SPI, 2015) measuring the number of people with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher, and alcohol abuse (WHO, 2010) indicating the number of adults consuming over 60 grams of pure alcohol at least once in 30 days.
