Dianova Chili and the Sustainable Development Goals

Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning

sdg 4: educationIn 2017, the educational activities of Dianova Chile have participated in the implementation of several of the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals 4 (Education) and 16 (Peace and Justice) in terms of education and violence prevention. Thanks to close partnerships with the national education system, students, families and teachers from the public schools of Curicó Municipality and Maule University participated in a cycle of debates from the  Convivencial programme (Living Together) aimed at preventing school-based violence.

These initiatives have also made progress in the area of ​​gender equality by including the gender perspective (SDG 5 – Gender Equality) as a cross-cutting element. Finally, the Living Together programme provided students with the knowledge to adopt sustainable lifestyles based on a culture of peace and non-violence (SDG 4.7).

Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

sdg 3: healthThrough its addiction prevention and treatment programmes, Dianova Chile plays a role in the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 3 (health and well-being) and its associated targets related to AIDS and hepatitis (SDG 3.3), promoting mental health and well-being (SDG 3.4) and helping people with substance abuse disorders (SDG 3.5).

In addition, Dianova Chile’s programmes for women aim to meet their specific needs and expectations (SDG 5 – gender equality) through specialized staff and a tailored programme.

Lastly, intensive treatment programmes for juvenile offenders help to ensure an adequate reintegration of these young people, some of whom become agents for promoting a culture of peace and development in their communities (SDG 16.1 – peace and justice).
