[Correspondence] Health metrics priorities: a perspective from young researchers

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) update the global development agenda for the post-Millennium Development Goal (MDG) era, emphasising the world’s most pressing problems and the need for collaborative local, national, and global action to achieve those goals.1 The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) and peer institutions inform global health decision making by producing health estimates that measure progress towards targets related to the SDGs.2 With the SDGs’ emphasis on the complex relationship between health and development, we, as young researchers at IHME, see an opportunity for the health metrics field to examine its priorities through collaboration and outreach within and outside of the health metrics field.
