    Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages


    by Laura Jaeger, Tourism Watch - Bread for the World

    In order for tourism to promote good health and well-being for all, a comprehensive, cross-sectoral and people-centred approach is needed, which takes local people’s as well as tourists’ health and safety into account and puts a strong focus on equity in order to ensure that local people are not structurally disadvantaged.

    Governments and the tourism industry need to critically analyse health hazards and develop effective preventative measures in the destinations. They need to ensure that jobs created in tourism comply with labour laws, safety standards and pay fair wages that enable staff to cover their health insurance and medical bills. Tourism bears great potential to foster healthy lives and well-being for both tourists and local communities if the risks involved are reduced by effective preventative measures. For tourism to contribute significantly to Goal 3, revenues generated from tourism need to be invested in health care systems that are of good quality and accessible and affordable for all.
