Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global
TLDR
All-cause age-standardised YLD rates decreased by 3·9% from 1990 to 2017; however, the all-age YLD rate increased by 7·2% while the total sum of global YLDs increased from 562 million (421–723) to 853 million (642–1100). Expand
Global, regional, and national age-sex specific mortality for 264 causes of death, 1980–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016
TLDR
The Global Burden of Disease 2016 Study provides a comprehensive assessment of cause-specific mortality for 264 causes in 195 locations from 1980 to 2016, and evaluation of the expected epidemiological transition with changes in development and where local patterns deviate from these trends is evaluated. Expand
Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 84 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2017: a
TLDR
This study estimated levels and trends in exposure, attributable deaths, and attributable disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) by age group, sex, year, and location for 84 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or groups of risks from 1990 to 2017 and explored the relationship between development and risk exposure.

Global, regional, and national age-sex-specific mortality for 282 causes of death in 195 countries and territories, 1980–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017
TLDR
Non-communicable diseases comprised the greatest fraction of deaths, contributing to 73·4% (95% uncertainty interval [UI] 72·5–74·1) of total deaths in 2017, while communicable, maternal, neonatal, and nutritional causes accounted for 18·6% (17·9–19·6), and injuries 8·0% (7·7–8·2). Expand

TLDR
Overall, this study demonstrates that self-immolation should be considered as a mental health problem in the authors' society, and it is necessary to implement programs and strategies to prevent it. Expand
The State of US Health, 1990-2016: Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Among US States
TLDR
There are wide differences in the burden of disease at the state level and specific diseases and risk factors, such as drug use disorders, high BMI, poor diet, high fasting plasma glucose level, and alcohol use disorders are increasing and warrant increased attention. Expand
Self-Immolation in Iran
TLDR
It is demonstrated that self-immolation is a significant public health problem in some parts of Iran and that programs and strategies should focus on “macrosocial-based” interventions. Expand
Global, regional, and national disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) for 359 diseases and injuries and healthy life expectancy (HALE) for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2017: a systematic
TLDR
The patterns and trends of healthy life expectancy (HALE), which quantifies the number of years of life expected to be lived in good health, and the complementary measure of disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs), a composite measure of disease burden capturing both premature mortality and prevalence and severity of ill health, over the past 28 years are assessed. Expand
Prevention of self-immolation by community-based intervention.
TLDR
A community prevention program targeting self-immolation can be effective, and interventions were particularly aimed at young women and socio-economically deprived groups, these being shown to be at high risk in earlier studies. Expand

TLDR
Global health has steadily improved over the past 30 years as measured by age-standardised DALY rates, and there has been a marked shift towards a greater proportion of burden due to YLDs from non-communicable diseases and injuries. Expand
