Not on tar­get to meet UN-SDG goals

The Hindu Business Line - - PULSE -

The lat­est global es­ti­mates for the state of the world’s health from the Global Bur­den of Dis­ease study (GBD), pub­lished in a spe­cial is­sue of The Lancet, high­lights that global progress in health is not in­evitable. This year’s GBD study es­ti­mates that im­prove­ments in mor­tal­ity rates for adults were less pro­nounced over­all and stag­nated or got worse in some coun­tries in 2017. In ad­di­tion, no coun­tries are on tar­get to meet the United Na­tion’s Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals to im­prove health by 2030. The study is co­or­di­nated by the In­sti­tute for Health Met­rics and Eval­u­a­tion (IHME) at the Univer­sity of Wash­ing­ton, Seat­tle (US).
