This working paper has been developed by Scott C. Ratzan, Senior Fellow at the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government at the Harvard Kennedy School.  This is a multi-authored, co-created document developed to advance the potential for attaining the health-related UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 3) – “Good health and well-being” – with integration of the related “Partnership to achieve the goal” (SDG17).  This paper includes support and input from faculty, fellows and research assistants at the Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.  While global in intent, MESH has application for development of health and social impact program development from local to global levels.
