Global Health Risks Report

A comprehensive framework for studying health risks was previously published in the original CRA (CRA 2000) which presented estimates for 22 global risk factors and their attributable estimates of deaths and burden of disease for the year 2000.

This report uses updated information from World Health Organisation programmes and scientific studies for both exposure data and the casual associations of risk exposure to disease and injury outcomes. It applies these updated risk analyses to the latest regional estimates of mortality and disease burden for a comprehensive set of diseases and injuries for the year 2004.

Year published: 2009
