Health SDGs & Europe: The role of regional think tanks

December 2017

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) represent a new opportunity to boost Europe's role in the attainment of global health targets, such as ending preventable diseases and achieving universal health coverage. Think tanks and academic institutions can enhance the process by informing the design of national plans, supporting their implementation and urging institutions to account for their commitments. 

This publication briefly analyses the work done by European policy research institutions in the field (both think tanks dedicated to policy development and similar centres within academic institutions), and suggests ways whereby they can become better involved in the SDG debate.
