In April, the UPU shined the spotlight on Sustainable Development Goal 3 on Good Health and Well-being, focusing on the Post’s role in delivering health services to the doorsteps of billions of people around the globe.
Posts have supported health services for more than a century, distributing essential public health information, reducing social isolation and providing access to medicines. The COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted their potential as a partner in building healthy and resilient communities. During this time, Posts helped ensure the populations they serve had access to medical equipment, such as masks, as well as medicines and vaccines.
The UPU is supporting the delivery of health services by the Post through initiatives such as its Post4Health facility.
