Abstract: SummaryBackgroundImproving survival and extending the longevity of life for all populations requires timely, robust evidence on local mortality levels and trends. The Global Burden of Disease 2015 Study (GBD 2015) provides a comprehensive assessment of all-cause and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes in 195 countries and territories from 1980 to 2015. These results informed an in-depth investigation of observed and expected mortality patterns based on sociodemographic measures.MethodsWe estimated all-caus… Show more

“…However, CVD disease and death rates are highest in low‐ and middle‐income countries, despite there being a lower burden of classical risk factors 2, 3, 4. For example, in Peru, CVD affects 3.2 million (16% of the adult population), leading to a significant loss of well‐being, estimated at 281 829 Disability Adjusted Life Years.…”
