This study assesses the time trends of tuberculosis mortality across Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) with an emphasis on HIV status from 1990 to 2019.
WHO/Europe urges countries to take post COVID-19 condition seriously by urgently investing in research, recovery, and rehabilitation.
Using Bayesian model-based geostatistics, we generated spatially continuous estimates of all-age 2000–2018 onchocerciasis infection prevalence at the 5 × 5-km resolution as well as aggregations to the national level, along with corresponding estimates of the uncertainty in these predictions.
We aimed to estimate US health care spending for 11 respiratory conditions from 1996-2016, providing detailed trends and an evaluation of factors associated with spending growth.
Smoking, alcohol use, high BMI, and other known risk factors were responsible for nearly 4.45 million global cancer deaths in 2019, according to new research published in The Lancet using the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors (GBD) 2019 study.
We analysed results from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2019 to inform cancer control planning efforts globally.
This State of Global Air report provides an overview of air pollution levels and associated health impacts in cities around the world.
We aimed to estimate all-cause and cause-specific relative risk (RR) and excess mortality rate (EMR) in a nationwide cohort of inpatients with severe mental illness compared with inpatients without severe mental illness in a middle income country, Brazil.
We assessed the burden and trends of LRIs and risk factors across all age groups by sex, for 204 countries and territories.
In this video, moderator Dr. Gregory A. Roth and expert panelists provide analysis on: The most prevalent modifiable risk factors in North America, the implications of these findings on clinical practice, how clinicians can address modifiable risks with patients, and considerations for health policy.
The new analysis also sheds light on impact of Medicaid expansion on health care spending.
Contemporary estimates of state health spending are valuable for tracking divergent expenditure trajectories in the US and assessing the associated factors.
The gap between the US states that spend the most and least on health is wide, and varied growth rates mean that the gap between those who spend the most and the least is only increasing. More than 45% of the differences in health spending can be explained by income and regional prices, but much of the variation remains unexplained.
In this study, we aimed to estimate household overcrowding in Africa between 2000 and 2018 by combining available household survey data, population censuses, and other country-specific household surveys within a geostatistical framework.
Estimates suggest that more than 160 million women and adolescents who wanted to avoid pregnancy were not using contraceptives in 2019, despite significant progress in the use of modern contraceptives globally over the previous 50 years.
We present estimates of the contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR), modern contraceptive prevalence rate (mCPR), demand satisfied, and the method of contraception used for both partnered and unpartnered women for 5-year age groups in 204 countries and territories between 1970 and 2019.
High prevalence of diabetes has been reported in the Americas, but no comprehensive analysis of diabetes burden and related factors for the region is available. We aimed to describe the burden of type 1 and type 2 diabetes and that of hyperglycaemia in the Americas from 1990 to 2019.
Mrs. Bosco is recognized for her innovative and impactful use of Global Burden of Disease data to empower women and improve access to rural health care in India.
The new analysis from the Global Burden of Disease estimates that 1.34 billion people consumed harmful amounts of alcohol in 2020.
Small amounts of alcohol might lower the risk of some health outcomes but increase the risk of others, suggesting that the overall risk depends, in part, on background disease rates, which vary by region, age, sex, and year.
New analysis suggests that recommendations for how much one can drink should be based on age and local disease rates.
We provide estimates of visual acuity loss and blindness in the US by county.
In view of the high and increasing prevalence of diabetes, we aimed to quantify the burden of type 2 diabetes attributable to PM2·5 originating from ambient and household air pollution.
We report US spending-effectiveness ratios, using comprehensive estimates of health care spending from the Disease Expenditure Project and DALYs from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017.
We sought to report comprehensive trends in injury-related mortality and morbidity for adolescents aged 10–24 years during the past three decades.
