Global Burden of Disease Findings Coming Dec. 14

According to The Lancet, the results reveal substantial shifts in the burden of disease from children to younger adults, and also from communicable, maternal, neonatal, and nutritional conditions to noncommunicable diseases.

Representatives of The Lancet, the esteemed British medical journal, and the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation will host an event in London on Dec. 14 to present the findings of the 2010 Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study. The discussion will focus on estimates of mortality, causes of death, and years lived with disability for 291 conditions and 67 risk factors, for 21 regions, and three time periods -– 1990, 2005, and 2010.

According to The Lancet, the results "reveal substantial shifts in the burden of disease from children to younger adults, from premature mortality to morbidity and disability, from communicable, maternal, neonatal and nutritional conditions to noncommunicable diseases."

The event is open to the public, including through live webcasts of the five panel sessions, and The Lancet staff will tweet it live throughout the event. To access the webcasts, visit http://www.healthmetricsandevaluation.org/gbd/live.

The final panel session will discuss the implications of the findings and next steps, with panelists including Richard Horton of the journal; Christine Kaseba-Sata of the government of Zambia, Mickey Chopra of UNICEF, and Jane Halton of the University of Sydney.
