AHS 3003: Sustainable Approaches to Health in France

3 CreditsGlobal Perspectives

A wide range of factors influences health status in a country including politics, economics, culture, history and the systems that provide structure and process in country. As the global world developed the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework, we have seen an increase in innovative strategies by countries to meet the 2030 goals, with France emerging as a leader in their efforts. The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals are framed by five categories: planet, people, prosperity, peace, and partnership. France has made some innovative efforts to move the needle in each of these categories. For example, France is leading the way with food security, having introduced a new international strategy for food security, nutrition, and sustainable agriculture in October 2019. From public health and healthcare systems to food safety and security, the extensive challenges require collaboration, coordination, and an interprofessional approach to be successful. According to writer Kim Ann Zimmerman, “The culture and underlying values in France are distinctly different from the US. The French believe in égalité, which means equality, and is part of the country's motto: \"Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité.\" Many say they place a higher importance on equality than liberty and fraternity, the other two words in the motto.” We will explore how France’s history, culture, and underlying values affect health, health disparities and systems that influence health, healthcare and SDGs
