TAGS

In May 2021, the World Health Organization released its annual report on World Health Statistics 2021: Monitoring Health for the SDGs. As the name suggests, the report aggregates the latest data for 50+ health-related indicators from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the WHO Triple Billion targets.

Unlike previous annual reports though, the 2021 report additionally focuses on the human toll and impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, highlighting the importance of tracking inequalities and the urgency to accelerate progress to get back on track and recover equitably with the support of robust data and health information systems.
