UHAS Ranked 1st above UG & KNUST for SDG-3
The ranking assesses universities’ research into significant diseases and disorders, their support for healthcare professions, and the health of their students and employees towards SDG-3, which focuses on Good Health and well-being. SDG-3 strives to ensure that all people of all ages live healthy lifestyles and promote well-being.
In a communication to the Vice-Chancellor and the UHAS team, THE Regional Manager for Africa stated:
“I would like to personally congratulate you on your success in the 2023 Impact Rankings. To be ranked in your first year as one of the top 800 universities in the world is a phenomenal achievement.”
THE Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that evaluate universities in relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To give a complete and fair comparison across four main areas: research, stewardship, outreach, and teaching, carefully calibrated metrics were employed.
The honor of being named Number One in THE’s SDG-3 category adds to UHAS’s image and sense of pride, which is now in its tenth year. It adds to the fledgling university’s list of recent achievements on global performance metrics.
