Summary
"The Global Burden of Disease and Risk Factors is a culmination of the 1990 initiative and represents the end of the beginning of global disease burden assessments. It provides a single up-to-date source with a comprehensive statement of methods and a complete presentation of results. It also presents an examination of the uncertainty in the GBD estimates, and their sensitivity to variations in certain value parameters, and the inclusion of stillbirths. The growing and widespread use of disease burden concepts by national and international entities, and the heightened interest in further refining the basic descriptive epidemiology of diseases, injuries, and risk factors have laid the foundations for future population health assessments. This book provides the baseline against which future health progress will be measured."--Jacket
