Transforming outcomes in the latest IPJ

To keep up with the latest from FIP, follow us on social media!

“To transform our world” is the simple, overarching vision of the massive programme of work under the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These goals, adopted in 2015, are a call to action by all countries to promote prosperity, protect our planet, and address a range of social needs. These goals, which include “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages” (Goal 3), are also a call to action for our profession to play an important part in transforming our world. This issue of the IPJ contains reports from the 2018 FIP congress that illustrate the many positive changes already taking place within our profession that will improve the quality of life for those in our societies
