Background and Aim: Sustainable development to address the global economic, environmental and social issues has been introducedby prominent scientists and is widely used by governments, international organizationsand NGOs. This study aimed to assess the current sustainable development situation influencing health and the future of health in Iran.

Materials and Methods: This was a descriptive study. The sample size was determined using the targeted intentional method and data were collected through targeted search, semi-structured interviews and focus group discussions.

Results: Sustainable development situation in the country has improved in terms of quantitative indicators of child and maternal mortality and Human Development Index.Have However, badair quality, unemployment, inflation and other social harms have had undesirable trends.The most important  causes of slow sustainable development have been reliance on oil revenues, unemployment, increased inflation, inequity in incomes,  poverty, and insufficient intersectoral coordination due to lack of a multi-ministerial secretariat. The health sector should have a comprehensive approach to promoting health of the population.

Conclusion: Based on the findings, it is recommended to include training courses for managers based on sustainable development principles, as well as management techniques in academic training and in-service training of managers. It is essential to create a multi-ministerial infrastructure and, even, a infrastructural power, for cohesion and coordination in order to ensure sustainable development.
