Figures and Tables from this paper

Global burden of mental disorders among children aged 5–14 years
TLDR
The results of this work should improve health care if policy-makers use them to develop health policies to meet the real needs of populations (especially children) today.
Contribution of chronic diseases to the disability burden in a population 15 years and older, Belgium, 1997–2008
TLDR
To reduce the burden of disability in Belgium, interventions should target musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases especially among elderly, and attention should also be given to depression in young individuals.
Change in burden of disease in UK children and young people (0-24 years) over the past 20 years and estimation of potential burden in 2040: analysis using Global Burden of Disease (GBD) data.
TLDR
Forecast increases in DALYS from mental health problems, other adolescent health issues and the consequences of neonatal survival, such as neuro-disability and epilepsy, have potential implications for the training of paediatricians and workforce needs over the next two decades.
Contribution of chronic diseases to the mild and severe disability burden in Belgium
TLDR
The results indicate that the assessment of the contribution of chronic diseases on disability is more informative if different levels of disability are taken into consideration.
A contemporary picture of the burden of death and disability in Indian adolescents: data from the Global Burden of Disease Study.
TLDR
For both younger and older adolescent boys and for older adolescent girls, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and injuries are responsible for a greater number of deaths and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) than communicable diseases.

The Burden of Disease and Mortality by Condition: Data, Methods, and Results for 2001 -- Global Burden of Disease and Risk Factors
TLDR
The editors of the second edition of Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries (DCP2) decided to use the Version 3 GBD estimates for Chapter 3 The Burden of Disease and Mortality by Condition: Data, Methods, and Results for 2001.
The global burden of disease: a comprehensive assessment of mortality and disability from diseases injuries and risk factors in 1990 and projected to 2020.
TLDR
This is the first in a planned series of 10 volumes that will attempt to "summarize epidemiological knowledge about all major conditions and most risk factors" and use historical trends in main determinants to project mortality and disease burden forward to 2020.
Sensitivity and Uncertainty Analyses for Burden of Disease and Risk Factor Estimates
TLDR
Sensitivity analysis can be used to examine the effects of social values that have been incorporated into the design of the disability–adjusted life year (DALY), where age weight is the most controversial value built into the DALY.
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.
Global burden of disease and risk factors
TLDR
Global Burden of Disease and Risk Factors examines the comparative importance of diseases, injuries, and risk factors; it incorporates a range of new data sources to develop consistent estimates of incidence, prevalence, severity and duration, and mortality for 136 major diseases and injuries.
A transition in health status from childhood to adulthood and associated lifestyle risk factors: a 13-year interval follow-up study in South Africa
TLDR
Findings indicate that the transition in health status recorded elsewhere in the world can be demonstrated in this South African group of young adults who participated as children in the VAPS during 1990.
On the comparable quantification of health risks: lessons from the Global Burden of Disease Study.
TLDR
It is recommended that future assessments should focus on avoidable and attributable burden based on the plausible minimum risk counterfactual distribution of exposure, and four types of distributions of exposure that could be used as thecounterfactual distributions are identified.
