The Sustainable Development Goals: Mnemonics and explanation

Hi everyone! I'm back with a note. This time on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).

This is a crisp summary of what we need to know about them as Doctors or Health Care Practitioners (in any part of the world). They're so important that a major chunk of the Coldplay concert in Mumbai was based on them. (And every other person spoke about them. How Magic-al).

And they're Also very important for the Community Medicine students from India. So here goes :

SDG's were adopted by nations of the world on 25th September, 2015 to be achieved till 2030. 

They want to do 3 P's

End Poverty,
Bring Prosperity to all and
Protect the planet.
