Summary of "Neurosurgery and Sustainable Development Goals."

On September 25, 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a 17-goal action plan to transform the world by the year 2030, ushering in the Era of Sustainable Development. These Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were designed to continue where the preceding Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) left off, expanding on the MDG successes, and facing the challenges encountered during the prior decade and-a-half. The current Era of Sustainable Development and its impact on a breadth of neurosurgical concerns provide several unprecedented opportunities to enhance political prioritization of neurosurgical care equity. Neurosurgeons could therefore be well positioned to participate in the leadership of these global health development and policy reform efforts.
