The IM-SDG project aims to identify globally implemented sustainable approaches, models, tools, technologies and gaps in SDGs implementation. This will be achieved through a global synthesis of existing strategies, review of existing experiences from the IDRC Think Tanks initiatives and from AKU’s Center of Excellence for Women and Child Health (CoE-WCH), and a global systematic review of multi-sectoral strategies to address the SDGs. This will be complemented by consultations in five countries where AKDN and IDRC have strong networks and will conclude with two regional and one Ottawa-based dissemination events.

The project aimed to gather information on the progress of the implementation of health and health‐related SDGs since their ratification. Obtained knowledge highlighted the facilitators and barriers to the progress. Lessons were disseminated through various means to help countries to adopt successful strategies and avoid paths that met with failures. The project team successfully produced a report on global progress on implementation of SDGs based on the published literature. Project findings were disseminated at various national and global forums including the ‘What Works Summit’ in Mexico City, the 26th Canadian Conference on Global Health, SDG roundtable conference at Aga Khan University, Pakistan, in 2019, and in a national‐level forum in Pakistan titled ‘Implementation of health and health related SDGs: Current status and opportunities in Pakistan in January 2020, and finally, in meeting of experts in Ottawa in March 2020. Three peer‐reviewed manuscripts have resulted from the project that have been accepted for publication in BMJ Global Health – one of the most highly regarded and widely‐read journals in global health. One of the manuscripts is a systematic review that synthesizes current literature – including extensive review of grey literature – on how LMICs are implementing health and related SDGs and documenting key challenges and opportunities. The second manuscript collates on‐the‐ground information collected through the consultative meetings into a practice paper, which provides information in a manner that can be readily used by LMICs to
