[Comment] Saving lives with equity—the efficient route to the SDGs

2 years have now passed since the world’s governments adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Apart from embracing some bold targets for 2030, they pledged that each country would undertake a best endeavour to “reach the furthest behind first” and achieve the goals for every group, with noone left behind.1 These commitments put equity—the idea of equality with fairness—at the heart of the SDGs. UNICEF has reinforced the case for equity in its new report, Narrowing The Gaps: the Power of Investing in the Poorest Children.
