Disease burden initiative in India

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.

15% of the total disease burden in 2016 was due to child and maternal undernutrition.
10% of the total disease burden in 2016 was caused by air pollution levels.
66.9 years was the life expectancy for males and 70.3 for females in 2016.
39% for the age-standardized DALY rate was the highest increase among major non-communicable diseases in 2016.
