GBD 2017: Health-Related SDGs Data Interactive


This interactive visualization, presented by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), allows users to explore the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017) released in November 2018. With this tool, users can view individual countries’ progress made towards the health-related SDGs. The results can be sorted by country, health-related index (SDGs, MDGs, and Non-MDG), and year from 1990 to 2017, with projected results through 2030. In addition, an interactive map is included to provide comparison between nations. 

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) studies form the largest-ever systematic effort to describe the distribution and causes of a wide array of major diseases, injuries, and health risk factors by examining national and sub-national data across populations worldwide from 1990 to the present. Led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, it is a global effort, with more than 2,300 researchers from 130 countries, including numerous low- and middle-income countries, participating in the most recent update. Estimates from the GBD study may differ from national statistics due to differences in data sources and methodology.
