GDB is a collaboration that involves morethan 1,000 researchers in over 100 countries assembling the world’s data. TheIHME aims to provide the most accurate and comprehensive population healthinformation to create a strong foundation for strategic decision making.

He will discuss the conclusions of four capstone papers recently published in The Lancet. Key points are related to: child and adultmortality; causes of death; communicable, maternal, neonatal and nutritional disorders; non-communicable diseases; injuries and risk factors. A physician and economist, Murray is a professor of global health and director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington. He is a founder of the Global Burden of Disease, which he describes as a systematic, scientific effort to quantify the comparative magnitude of health loss due to diseases, injuries and risk factors by age, sex, geography and over time. GDB is a collaboration that involves morethan 1,000 researchers in over 100 countries assembling the world"s data. The IHME aims to provide the most accurate and comprehensive population health information to create a strong foundation for strategic decision making. In addition to collecting data, IHME develops methods to understand it, and trains the next generation of data scientists.
