The Global Burden of Disease (GDB) Study 2010 estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors globally and for 21 regions for 1990 and 2010. The results were published in The Lancet in March 2013 in “UK health performance: findings of the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010.”
Data from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 (GBD 2010) was used to examine the patterns of health loss in the UK, the leading preventable risks that explain some of these patterns, and how UK outcomes compare with a set of comparable countries in the European Union and elsewhere in 1990 and 2010. Trends and relative performance for mortality, causes of death, years of life lost (YLLs), years lived with disability (YLDs), disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs), and healthy life expectancy (HALE) were analyzed in this study. Results showed that for both mortality and disability, overall health has improved substantially in absolute terms in the UK from 1990 to 2010.
