Global Burden of Disease Study
The Global Burden of Disease Study commenced in 1990 as a single World Bank commissioned study, now called GBD 1990 and published most effectively in terms of impact in 1993 although the seminal mongraph was in 1996. It utilised disability-adjusted life-years as a useful metric for international comparative healthcare. The original work was mainly done by WHO and Harvard University researchers. Updates followed, initially under WHO sponsorship. It is currently sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation allowing much more rapid data publication. Updates include:
- The 2004 update actually published in 2008.
- The 2010 update actually published in 2012
- The 2013 update published 2014 onwards
- The 2015 update published in 2016
- The 2016 update published in 2017
- The 2017 update published in 2018
It has documented for most of the worlds population marked gains in life expectancy since 1970, that for much of the world continue as of 2019. It also identifies the differential impact of significant public health issues such as dengue fever and the opioid epidemic created by more ready availability of prescription opioids.
