We measured the associations that democracy has with universal health coverage and government health spending in 170 countries during the period 1990–2019.
This research aims to provide policymakers and researchers with a single repository of available national health expenditures by healthcare functions (ie, services) and providers of such services.
The COVID-19 pandemic may have resulted in the largest and most widespread global disruption to life-saving immunisation programmes in history, putting millions of children—in rich and poor countries alike—at risk for measles, diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough), according to a new modelling study published in The Lancet.
The COVID-19 pandemic and efforts to reduce SARS-CoV-2 transmission substantially affected health services worldwide. To better understand the impact of the pandemic on childhood routine immunisation, we estimated disruptions in vaccine coverage associated with the pandemic in 2020, globally and by Global Burden of Disease (GBD) super-region.
We present a comprehensive analysis of the disease burden and trends of neurological disorders at the state level in India.
Drawing from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2020, Release 1, we did a systematic analysis of global, regional, and national vaccine coverage trends using a statistical framework, by vaccine and over time.
Members of the IHME data visualization team explain how to use the "scenarios" and "reported deaths" features of the COVID-19 projections tool.
Associate Professor Joseph Dieleman discusses COVID-19 and pandemic preparedness, as part of the Health Metrics Sciences lecture series.
Does personal health care access and quality vary across ages among high-income countries and US states, and does any observed variation associate with insurance coverage?
IHME Director Dr. Christopher J. L. Murray and COVID Collaborative CEO John Bridgeland introduce a new visualization tool, showing COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy in the US by ZIP code and county.
Data down to zip code level shows huge variations in vaccine hesitancy within counties.
We provide a contemporary and comprehensive evaluation of sector- and fuel-specific contributions to ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5) across 21 regions, 204 countries, and 200 sub-national areas by integrating 24 global atmospheric chemistry-transport model sensitivity simulations, high-resolution satellite-derived PM2.5 exposure estimates, and disease-specific concentration response relationships.
We aimed to estimate the total reductions in under-5 mortality that are associated with increased maternal and paternal education, during distinct age intervals.
A new study conducted by researchers at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington School of Medicine and the Centre for Global Health Inequalities Research (CHAIN) found significant reductions in children’s risk of death associated with more years of parental education.
Christopher J.L. Murray, Director of IHME, discusses his new comment in The Lancet about the Group of 7 (G7) Summit June 11–13, 2021 in Cornwall, UK.
This study utilizes the most recent data available to provide an updated comparison of available data sources on government spending on immunization.
With an excess of COVID-19 vaccines in high-income settings, leaders of those countries should act on their promises to send surplus doses to countries where vaccines remain scarce.
Thomas J Bollyky, Director of the Global Health Program at the Council on Foreign Relations, discusses his new comment in The Lancet about the Group of 7 (G7) Summit June 11–13, 2021 in Cornwall, UK.
HIV incidence in sub-Saharan Africa declined substantially between 2000 and 2015. In this analysis, we consider the relative associations of nine structural and individual determinants with this decline.
Here we present a geospatial analysis of EBF prevalence estimates from 2000 to 2018 across 94 LMICs mapped to policy-relevant administrative units (for example, districts), quantify subnational inequalities and their changes over time, and estimate probabilities of meeting the World Health Organization’s Global Nutrition Target (WHO GNT) of ≥70% EBF prevalence by 2030.
For this iteration of the Health Metrics Sciences lecture series, Professor Christopher J. L. Murray and Associate Professor Haidong Wang explore estimating global total COVID-19 mortality.
We aimed to assess HIV incidence and HIV mortality for all second-level administrative units across sub-Saharan Africa.
Marissa Reitsma, lead author of two of three new global studies on tobacco published in The Lancet, discusses insights and key takeaways from her research.
Parkes Kendrick, lead author of a new global study on chewing tobacco, discusses her research and the devastating health impacts of this harmful habit.
Maria Carmona, Director of International Research for the Campaign For Tobacco-Free Kids, discusses the importance of protecting women, adolescents, and young adults from tobacco marketing.
