Abstract

The United Nations is committed to ensuring the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are embedded across all streams of society, including business, government, industry, and education. With regards to the latter, it is incumbent upon Further and Higher Education (FHE) institutions to ensure their students are fully aware of the SDGs and their importance, and are empowered to help contribute to the success of the goals during their undergraduate courses and future careers. Pharmacists and other healthcare professionals are ideally placed to promote sustainability and should be supported to maximise this impact throughout their professional practice. SDG3 (Good Health and Well-being) is the most immediately obvious goal pharmacists contribute towards. However, given the interconnectedness of the SDGs, other goals comprise health-related determinants, meaning integrated implementation across SDGs is needed for the achievement of Agenda 2030.
