The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington is releasing new findings related to the Sustainable Development Goals in a scientific paper, a data visualization tool, and a report produced in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Goalkeepers: The Stories Behind the Data is the foundation’s first annual progress report on the SDGs and was produced in partnership with IHME. The Gates’ Goalkeepers report
With this tool, users can explore progress made toward achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Measure progress made by 195 countries and territories from 1990 to 2017 and projecting attainment to 2030 toward 41 health-related indicators. See how countries have progressed over time. Share and download figures for later use.
These updated findings are important to understanding today’s gains and gaps for the health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and are essential for decision-makers as they aim to improve the health of populations. We have highlighted some uses and coverage of last year’s SDG report and paired them with particularly interesting or notable findings from GBD 2016.
GBD is the most comprehensive effort to date to measure epidemiological levels and trends worldwide. It is the product of a global research collaborative and quantifies the impact of hundreds of diseases, injuries, and risk factors in countries around the world.
The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are grounded in the global ambition of “leaving no one behind.” Understanding today’s gains and gaps for the health-related SDGs is essential for decision-makers as they aim to improve the health of populations. As part of the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2016 (GBD 2016), we measured 37 of the 50 health-related SDG indicators over the period 1990–2016 for 188 countries, and then on the basis of these past trends, we projected indicators to 2030.
