Health and well-being are the key drivers of social and economic development, as well as a major priority for the population and communities, as the deterioration in health generates the loss of life and the waste of resources in all sectors, besides suffering to people. Factors contributing to the prosperity also contribute to an increase in the health of the population, since fair access to education, decent living conditions and decent incomes contribute to maintaining health. At the same time, increasing work productivity, healthier aging of the population, and lower spending on sick leave and social benefits are influenced by population health. It is noticed that the current globalization process is becoming more and more conflicting from the point of view of the distribution of its offers, as it is accompanied by profound social inequality. In middle and low income countries, there is a marked increase in chronic disease that is increasingly worrying, we see increasing nutritional problems, an acute frequency of obesity worldwide, a demographic transition with population growth of the third age. Under these conditions, we consider that the relationship between sustainable development and public health are issues that are worth analyzing, so that public policies can take this into account and thus can contribute to increasing the well-being of the present and future generations.
