BACKGROUND Our aim was to calculate the global burden of disease and risk factors for 2001, to examine regional trends from 1990 to 2001, and to provide a starting point for the analysis of the Disease Control Priorities Project (DCPP. [...] Key Method We estimated mortality and disease burden attributable to 19 risk factors. FINDINGS About 56 million people died in 2001. Of these, 10.6 million were children, 99% of whom lived in low-and-middle-income countries. More than half of child deaths in 2001 were…Expand

Projections of Global Mortality and Burden of Disease from 2002 to 2030
TLDR
These projections represent a set of three visions of the future for population health, based on certain explicit assumptions, which enable us to appreciate better the implications for health and health policy of currently observed trends, and the likely impact of fairly certain future trends.

Characterizing the Epidemiological Transition in Mexico: National and Subnational Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors
TLDR
A unique characteristic of the epidemiological transition in Mexico is that overweight and obesity, high blood glucose, and alcohol use are responsible for larger burden of disease than other noncommunicable disease risks such as tobacco smoking. Expand
Global variation in stroke burden and mortality: estimates from monitoring, surveillance, and modelling
TLDR
Current measures of the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors at the population level poorly predict overall stroke mortality and burden and do not explain the greater burden in low-income countries. Expand
The burden and costs of chronic diseases in low-income and middle-income countries
This paper estimates the disease burden and loss of economic output associated with chronic diseases-mainly cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes-in 23 selectedExpand
The non-fatal disease burden caused by type 2 diabetes in South Africa, 2009
TLDR
It is estimated that the prevalence of diabetes is increasing in South Africa, representing approximately 2 million cases of diabetes and its sequelae in 2009, and some of the attributed burden can be prevented through early detection and treatment. Expand
Chronic Diseases 1 The burden and costs of chronic diseases in low-income and middle-income countries
TLDR
Achievement of a global goal for chronic disease prevention and control—an additional 2% yearly reduction in chronic disease death rates over the next 10 years—would avert 24 million deaths in these countries, and would save an estimated $8 billion, which is almost 10% of the projected loss in national income over thenext 10 years.

Trends and inequalities in the burden of mortality in Scotland 2000–2015
TLDR
The total YLL per 100,000 population in Scotland has declined over time, predominantly due to a wide range of chronic diseases, substance misuse, self-harm and increasingly Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Expand
Mortality profiles in a country facing epidemiological transition: An analysis of registered data
TLDR
Peruvian mortality shows a double burden of communicable and non- Communicable, with increasing importance of non-communicable diseases and injuries, which challenges national and sub-national health system performance and policy making. Expand
The Disability Adjusted Life Years Due to Stroke in South Africa in 2008
TLDR
This study provides information on prevalence, incidence and disease burden of stroke at the national level in South Africa and calculates disability adjusted life years attributable to stroke in 2008. Expand
