dc.description.abstract 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. GBD 2016 provides an updated and expanded evidence base on where the world currently stands in terms of the health-related SDGs. Our improved measure of UHC offers a basis to monitor the expansion of health services necessary to meet the SDGs. Based on past rates of progress, many places are facing challenges in meeting defined health-related SDG targets, particularly among countries that are the worst off. In view of the early stages of SDG implementation, however, opportunity remains to take actions to accelerate progress, as shown by the catalytic effects of adopting the Millennium Development Goals after 2000. With the SDGs??? broader, bolder development agenda, multisectoral commitments and investments are vital to make the health-related SDGs within reach of all populations. en
