Presentation by Dr. Chris Murray and Colleagues Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) University of Washington Co-author, The Global Burden of Disease 2010 study What diseases cause the greatest numbers of deaths and disabilities? They might not be what you'd expect. Hear the results of The Global Burden of Disease 2010 study from the senior author and his team. Come armed with the questions most pertinent to your research area so you can join in the discussion. The recent GBD 2010 study is the largest single report ever published by The Lancet. The project is a systematic, scientific effort to quantify the comparative magnitude of deaths and disability due to diseases, injuries and risk factors by age, sex and geography with a look at these trends over time. The GBD construct of the burden of disease is health loss, not income or productivity loss. For decision makers, health-sector leaders, researchers and informed citizens, this approach provides an opportunity to see the big picture, to compare diseases, injuries and risk factors, and to grasp the most important contributors to health loss.
