The Lack of Speech Pathology Abroad

Goal 3: good health and well-being


speech pathology: the study and treatment of speech and language problems

Issue: Major developed countries, such as China, don't have available access to speech therapy services. Because speech is essential to cognitive learning and social skills, it is imperative that everyone have access to these health services.

Goal 3 Targets That Apply To My Topic

  • Substantially increase health financing and the recruitment, development, training and retention of the health workforce in developing countries, especially in least developed countries and small island developing States
  • Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all

How Do These Targets Tie In?

How My Service Project Aligns with UN Targets

Service Project: Art Gallery

  • An art gallery that focuses on the importance of speech and communication in order to spark community awareness about the services that are available to US citizens.
  • While the UN is focusing on making policies, my project is an indirect service because it encourages the audience to think about the topic being presented
