GBD 20th Anniversary

Published September 25, 2017

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Global Burden of Disease study, those who have invested and been impacted by this work reflect on the past two decades.

The GBD is the world’s largest systematic, scientific effort to quantify the magnitude of health loss from all major diseases, injuries, and risk factors by age, sex, and population. With 2,303 collaborators in 130 countries and territories, the study examines 332 diseases and injuries and 84 risk factors. The GBD has helped transform health care policy in numerous countries, and has greatly influenced research, policy, and education.
