UN Sustainable Development Goals - Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

‘Society as a whole benefits when more people are being productive and contributing to their country’s growth.’ – UN
Preventable diseases are a serious barrier to economic growth, as they stop people from being healthy, strong, and available for work and school.
Below are a number of our DVDs which relate directly to increasing people’s health and well-being in order to pursue decent and consistent work, and to help contribute to their economy.
