Norwegian development policy is built on a foundation of promoting and respecting fundamental human rights and ensuring equal access to health services. These ideals are based on strong, sustainable and nationally-owned health systems. Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals requires more integrated approaches, and Norway works with others to create a more harmonized global health architecture that will facilitate progress toward the Agenda 2030. The key principle of “leaving no one behind” requires inclusion of marginalized and vulnerable groups, such as young people and including young key populations. Human rights, women’s rights and gender equality, climate change and the environment, and anti-corruption are cross-cutting issues for Norway.
