    Much the same meaning. 3 maybe emphasizes the fairness aspect by placing the word at the end of the sentence.

    Agreed with @Aidan. Sentence 3 puts the emphasis strongest upon the equitable distribution of condition improvement, which is likely what the writer intended. Commented Jun 28, 2021 at 14:29

all three are correct, and the meaning is much the same for all of them. Sentence 3 emphasizes "fairly" a bit. Sentence 2 emphasizes "all countries", But in this case the difference is small, and the difference is largely one of style.
