The Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings were created to measure universities against the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The assessment uses calibrated indicators to make comparison across three broad areas: research, outreach, and stewardship. Universities can be ranked in individual SDGs and receive an overall Impact Ranking. To be ranked overall the university must participate in at least 3 SDGs plus SDG 17.
#201-300 SDG3: Good Health and Well-being
