Global Burden of Disease

The Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD), published by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) "provides a tool to quantify health loss from hundreds of diseases, injuries, and risk factors, so that health systems can be improved and disparities can be eliminated".[1]

GBD has been published in English since 1990, and since 2015, the study's data visualisation tool has also been published in Chinese, Spanish, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, and Swedish.[2]
