The South Australian government jointly with WHO organized the International Health in All Policies Conference - Progressing the Sustainable Development Goals, in Adelaide on 30-31 March 2017. A key outcome was the statement "Health in All Policies: Governance, Partnerships and the Sustainable Development Agenda, Adelaide Statement II on Health in All Policies 2017."

The statement stresses that:

  • Health is a political choice, and as such any political, economic, social and ecological decision has health and equity impacts. Mayors play a critical role in agenda 2030 and health.
  • The SDGs are indivisible and universal and should not be addressed in silos but rather through taking into consideration their interconnectedness.
  • The transformative strategies for implementing the SDGs require joint action and policy coherence through the various levels of the government. Thus health literacy is critical to good governance.
