Just 20 conditions make up more than half of all spending on health care in the United States, according to a new comprehensive financial analysis that examines spending by diseases and injuries.
People across the world are living longer but spending more time in ill health as rates of nonfatal diseases and injuries – including diabetes and hearing loss – decline more slowly than death rates, according to a new analysis of 301 diseases and injuries in 188 countries.
British people spend more time with chronic illness and disability than most Europeans. Young adults are hit hard by alcohol and drug use.
Fewer people dying but more live with disability. Mental health disorders, pain, and injuries hindering people’s health. Obesity and high blood sugar replacing lack of food as leading risks.
In an example of Norway’s ongoing commitment to the health of its people, today the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), in partnership with the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH), published the report Norway: State of the Nation’s Health: Findings from the Global Burden of Disease.
People across the US are living longer but spending more time in ill health as rates of nonfatal diseases and injuries – including low back pain, major depressive disorder, and diabetes – decline more slowly than death rates, according to a new analysis of 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries.
From left to right, you can see the top 25 causes ranked by total DALYs worldwide. The Size of the bars up or down reflects the percent changes from 1990 to 2010.
The Arab world has a set of historical, geopolitical, social, cultural, and economic characteristics and has been involved in several wars that have affected the burden of disease. Moreover, financial and human resources vary widely across the region. We aimed to examine the burden of diseases and injuries in the Arab world for 1990, 2005, and 2010 using data from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 (GBD 2010).
China made substantial gains in health over the past two decades, including increases in life expectancy, reductions in child mortality, and declines in infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and lower respiratory infections. But with that success accompanies the growth of non-communicable diseases and risk factors such as tobacco use and high blood pressure, which could overwhelm the health system.
Up-to-date evidence about levels and trends in disease and injury incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability (YLDs) is an essential input into global, regional, and national health policies. In the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (GBD 2013), we estimated these quantities for acute and chronic diseases and injuries for 188 countries between 1990 and 2013.
In the Middle East and North Africa, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes are causing a massive amount of premature death and disability. People in Latin America and the Caribbean are living longer on the whole, yet they face increasing threats from chronic diseases. Mortality has declined in many South Asian countries, yet the number of deaths by non-communicable diseases and self-harm has skyrocketed since 1990.
The Global Burden of Disease: Generating Evidence, Guiding Policy – Middle East and North Africa Regional Edition summarizes the main findings for the Middle East and North Africa and explores the leading causes of diseases, injuries, and risk factors in countries across the region. The publication shows that in the Middle East and North Africa, health challenges are becoming increasingly similar to those in Western countries. Published by the World Bank and IHME, the report is based on the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 (GBD 2010), a collaborative effort of researchers from 50 countries around the world led by IHME at the University of Washington.
The Global Burden of Disease: Generating Evidence, Guiding Policy – Latin America and Caribbean Regional Edition summarizes changes in diseases, injuries, and risk factors in Latin America and Caribbean and compares the performance of countries in the region. The publication examines the growing threat posed by chronic diseases, violence, and road traffic injuries. Published by the World Bank and IHME, the report is based on the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 (GBD 2010), a collaborative effort of researchers from 50 countries around the world led by IHME at the University of Washington.
Analyze updated data about the world’s health levels and trends from 1990 to 2017 in this interactive tool using estimates from the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study. Compare causes and risks within a country (now at the US state-level), compare countries with regions or the world, and explore patterns and trends by country, age, and gender.
In nearly every major cause of premature death – from ischemic heart disease to diabetes to interpersonal violence – the United States trails its economic peers, according to new research from a global collaborative of scientists led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington.
