Happiness is the meaning and the
purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence (Aristotle)’, quoted
The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (established in 2012), when the
leaders launched its 10th Anniversary World Happiness Report (2023).
The latter Report focused uniquely on the effects of the COVID pandemic
as well as some positive social outcomes that surprise in the pandemic context.
SDSN took a unique advisory view for the UN from reporting on economic outcomes
measures and shifted the paradigm to focus on defining a well-being aspiration
for individuals and nations. The methods they deploy incorporate not only the
typical health (life expectancy) and wealth (GDP) measures, but also more
intangible aspects; i.e., social support, freedom to make life choices,
generosity, perceptions of government, business corruption, and recent
experiences of emotions. In this current APHA Global Maternal & Child
Health/Mental Health two-part series, we will highlight and disseminate international
policies and evidence-based practices and resources that are intended to
prevent and/or mitigate the deleterious effects of a range of global events
affecting maternal, child and youth mental health across the world as well as
build optimal GMCYH-MH programs and systems.
