Subnational Regional Burden of Disease

The overall process in the unit is critically important to provide sub-national burden of disease estimate by tracking trends in mortality, priority diseases, injuries and risk factors.

The unit provides burden of disease estimates at the level of ten sub-national or regional states and two city administrations. The unit identifies data scarce areas to answer concerns on disease type requiring more data to describe burden. The unit also focuses to generate relevant data using surveys and surveillance systems in collaboration with local institutions.
