Welcome to the Science Summit at UNGA76, a major contribution to advancing Science for the UN SDGs. Online from 14- September - 5 October 2021.
ISC will organise the second edition of the UNGA76 Science Summit around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (SSUNGA76) in September 2021. The objective of the virtual meeting will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will demonstrate initiatives that provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of the SDGs, particularly in science infrastructure and capacity building. Science is and will enable sustainable economic, environmental, and societal development. Science is more than a funding prioritisation exercise: science is impacting all areas of policy-making and is playing a more critical role in how policy objectives are achieved and the consequent benefit to people everywhere, including responses to global challenges.
Engagement with policy leadership is more important than ever: UNGA76 is a unique forum for science to demonstrate how policy and political leadership can benefit from innovation. Central to this is the role of nonstate actors and the multilateral fora, which increasingly determine how priorities are set. Science needs to be part of this dialogue and inform outputs through thought leadership, evidence, insights, analysis, and innovation.

Registration is available here.

AOSK Health Association coordinator
Nairobi Kenya
I am a catholic Nun working with the Association of sisterhoods of Kenya. A nurse by profession and passionate about mental health and well-being of people.
Currently a student at Tangaza University College pursuing BA in Counselling Psychology. My greatest desire is to reduce the burden of treatment for the poor. The cost of health and well-being is very expensive and poverty margin seems to be increasing day by day, the poor becoming poorer and the rich richer. Reducing the margin is a dream, but reducing the cost for health for the marginalized can increase my joy and peace. Digital health will do this in the sense that, e-health and tele-medicine at the grassroots will ease life threatening experiences for the poor.

So, If you want to talk to me, tell me how we can equip the remote health facilities managed by Catholic Nuns with diagnostic machines, and give the poor a chance to receive the same health services as the rich, and safe both the life of the poor and the rich.
Mental health issues are on the increase, talk to me how we can empower the Nuns to carry out family Ministry to sensitize on the issues and empower the families on mental health and well-being at least we can reduce suicide cases.
you can also talk to me about life in general.
