The Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) is the largest and most comprehensive effort to date to measure epidemiological levels and trends worldwide. We continue to build and sustain an even larger and more diverse network of GBD Collaborators from around the world with expertise in demography, specific diseases, injuries, risk factors, and impairments, the epidemiological profile of individual countries, health financing, geospatial analysis, and health systems. We invite you to apply to join the GBD Collaborator Network.
At the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, we are diagnosing the world’s health problems and identifying solutions to these problems. These are some of the ambitious activities we’re currently working on and projects we’re planning that will revolutionize the world’s approach to tackling health threats.
