Measuring progress and projecting attainment on the basis of past trends of the health-related Sustainable Development Goals in 188 countries: an analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016.
- Public Health Research
BackgroundThe 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.
