We take action to make healthcare better for those who need it and to improve physical, mental and social health and wellbeing in all parts of society.

Our themes and sustainable development

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Our integrating themes have clear links to these important goals.

Middlesex is part of the SDG Accord which foregrounds the critical role that Higher Education has in delivering the SDGs and the value that our institutions bring to governments, business and wider society.
