Global Burden of Disease Discussion Papers: Landscape Analysis for Pneumonia Burden and Field Mortality Estimation Methods

Global Burden of Disease  Discussion Papers: Landscape Analysis for Pneumonia Burden and Field Mortality Estimation Methods

There is considerable variation in global estimates of pneumonia-related and diarrhea-related deaths. Estimates come from two main global sources (CHERG and IHME) as well as through other targeted analyses. The Foundation previously engaged with the UW START team to develop a Landscape of Analysis for Pneumonia Burden and Field Mortality Estimation Methods. This project builds on that work by developing a discussion paper for an external audience in collaboration with leading pneumonia and diarrheal disease experts.
