India State-Level Disease Burden Initiative

The India State-Level Disease Burden Initiative was launched in October 2015. It is a collaboration between the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), and senior experts and stakeholders from about 100 institutions across India.

  • This Initiative reported an unprecedented, comprehensive assessment of the diseases causing the most premature deaths and ill health in each state of the country, the risk factors responsible for this burden, and their trends spanning 26 years, from 1990 to 2016.
  • The burden from 333 disease conditions and injuries and 84 risk factors was computed for each state of India as part of the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016.
