      The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors from 1990 to 2017. The United Nations established, in September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which specify 17 universal goals, 169 targets, and 232 indicators leading up to 2030. Drawing from GBD 2017, this dataset provides estimates on progress for 41 health-related SDG indicators for 195 countries and territories from 1990 to 2017, and projections, based on past trends, for 2018 to 2030. Estimates are also included for the health-related SDG index, a summary measure of overall performance across the health-related SDGs.

      The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2018 reviews progress in the third year of implementation of the 2030 Agenda presenting an overview with charts and info-graphics of highlights of the 17 Goals, followed by chapters that focus in more depth on the Goals under review at the high-level political forum in July 2018. This report follows the recently published report of the United Nations Secretary-General on "Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals" (E/2018/64), both of which are based on the global indicator framework developed by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) and agreed by the General Assembly in July 2017 in resolution 71/313. The launch of The Sustainable Development Goals Report 2018 is accompanied by the Global SDG Indicators Database, which presents country level data and global and regional aggregates compiled through the UN System and other international organizations.
