We aimed to examine injury-related morbidity and mortality among adults aged 50 years or older in 22 Eastern Mediterranean countries.
We estimated the burden of mental disorders, substance use disorders, and self-harm in people aged 10-24 in 31 European countries.
NCD-related mortality has substantially declined among adolescents in the EU between 1990 and 2019, but the rising trend of YLL attributed to mental disorders and their YLD burden are concerning.
We undertook a comprehensive assessment of the burden of disease in Nigeria and compared outcomes to other west African countries.
The GBD 2019 Ethiopia subnational analysis aimed to measure the progress and disparities in health across nine regions and two chartered cities.
We modelled healthcare spending attributable to dementia from 2000 to 2019 and expected estimated future spending from 2020 to 2050 under multiple scenarios.
Mortality statistics are fundamental to public health decision making. Mortality varies by time and location, and its measurement is affected by well known biases that have been exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic. This paper aims to estimate excess mortality from the COVID-19 pandemic in 191 countries and territories, and 252 subnational units for selected countries, from Jan 1, 2020, to Dec 31, 2021.
More than three times as many people may have died worldwide as a result of the pandemic than official COVID-19 death records suggest, according to new research.
Published every three years, the 2021 European Health Report, produced by the WHO EURO, provides insight into progress towards health-related Sustainable Development Goals.
We used data from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2019 (GBD 2019) to estimate mortality and disability trends for the population aged ≥70 and evaluate patterns in causes of death, disability, and risk factors.
Postdoctoral scholar Christian Razo discusses the burden of disease attributable to high LDL-cholesterol as part of the Health Metrics Sciences lecture series.
As COVID-19 has caused major disruptions in all aspects of life, women have experienced negative social and economic impacts to a greater extent than men, according to new research.
Gender is emerging as a significant factor in the social, economic, and health effects of COVID-19; yet most existing studies have focused on its direct impact on health. Here we explore the indirect effects of COVID-19 on gender disparities globally.
With the recent lowering of Air Quality Guidelines, many countries face challenges in achieving cleaner air.
The infection–fatality ratio (IFR) is a metric that quantifies the likelihood of an individual dying once infected with a pathogen. Understanding the determinants of IFR variation for COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has direct implications for mitigation efforts with respect to clinical practice, non-pharmaceutical interventions, and the prioritisation of risk groups for targeted vaccine delivery.
The European Health Report is produced every three years by the WHO Regional Office for Europe, providing insight into the Regional progress towards health-related SDGs.
International migration has increased since 1990, with increasing numbers of migrants originating from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
We compared the cost-effectiveness of micronutrient supplementation and balanced energy protein with iron and folic acid to quantify their benefits in four countries with considerable prevalence of maternal undernutrition.
Meta-analysis suggests need for scaling up treatment for this severe depression in some low and lower-middle income countries.
This study aims to provide a comprehensive review of the evidence and analytically quantify sources of heterogeneity to report updated estimates of major depressive disorder treatment coverage and gaps by location and treatment type between 2000 and 2019.
This study assesses the quality of the vital registration system in capturing deaths and evaluates the quality of cause of death certification in under-5 deaths in Yucatan, Mexico.
We aimed to evaluate diabetes mortality and trends at ages younger than 25 years globally using data from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2019.
We present the findings of a research paper on anti-microbial resistance, published in The Lancet.
Professor Bobby Reiner, MS, PhD, provides an update of the IHME COVID-19 model.
Low levels of government and social trust, as well as higher levels of government corruption, are strongly correlated to higher COVID-19 infection rates around the world, according to a new peer-reviewed study published today in The Lancet.
