N2 - Background: The Global Burden of Disease, Injuries, and Risk Factor study 2013 (GBD 2013) is the first of a series of annual updates of the GBD. Risk factor quantification, particularly of modifiable risk factors, can help to identify emerging threats to population health and opportunities for prevention. The GBD 2013 provides a timely opportunity to update the comparative risk assessment with new data for exposure, relative risks, and evidence on the appropriate counterfactual risk distribution. Methods: Attributable deaths, years of life lost, years lived with ...
Background: Diabetes is one of the most prevalent non-communicable diseases (NCDs) all over the world and leading cause of death, disability, and economic loss. Diabetes imposes a heavy economic burden on individuals, their families and society as a whole. The aim of this study is to estimate the economic burden of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Bangladesh and to find association between glycemic control and Health Related Quality of Life with cost-of-illness (COI).. Methodology: This will be an analytical cross-sectional cost-of-illness study. Within a specific time period participants aged ≥18 years, registered with Bangladesh Diabetic Somiti and having type 2 diabetes for more than one year will be recruited from selected hospitals inside and outside Dhaka to cover all level of health care services. A pre-tested electronic questionnaire will be used for data collection. The questionnaire will include demographic, clinical, behavioral information of the participants and all cost related ...

In type 2 diabetes, the successive failure of nonpharma-cologic therapy and oral antihyperglycemic agents eventually burdens patients with a heavy history of uncontrolled hyperglycemia. When this glycemic burden is defined as HbA1c-years ,8.0%, the total burden ranges from three-fourths of an HbA1c-year (8.6 HbA1c-months) in individuals failing diet and exercise to ∼2.5 HbA1c-years (29.9 HbA1c-months) for individuals failing combination therapy. When it is defined as HbA1c-years ,7.0%, the total burden is much higher, from 1.9 to 5.9 HbA1c-years (22.5-58.3 HbA1c-months). If, before starting insulin, a hypothetical patient were to progress from nonpharmacologic treatment through sulfonylurea or metformin monotherapy to combination oral agent therapy, as patients typically do in our study setting, he or she would accumulate nearly 5 HbA1c-years of total burden ,8.0% and about 10 HbA1c-years of total burden ,7.0%. The latter figure exceeds the mean reduction in glycemic burden (9.0 HbA1c-years) ...

Over the last decade, there have been several attempts to estimate the global burden of ill health due to work activity. The most recent of these is the Comparative Risk Assessment (CRA) project of the World Health Organization. Published estimates of global burden of injury and disease due to occupational factors were summarized, compared, and contrasted with the aim of putting the CRA estimates

Up-to-date information about the economic impact of dental diseases is essential for health care decision makers when seeking to make rational use of available resources. The purpose of this study was to provide up-to-date estimates for dental expenditures (direct costs) and productivity losses (indirect costs) due to dental diseases on the global, regional, and country level. Direct costs of dental diseases were estimated using a previously established systematic approach; indirect costs were estimated using an approach developed by the World Health Organization Commission on Macroeconomics and Health and factoring in 2015 values for gross domestic product and disability-adjusted life years from the Global Burden of Disease Study ...
Along with The global burden of disease: 2004 update, WHO also analyzed the mortality and burden of disease attributable to 24 global risk factors using a consistent analytic framework known as Comparative Risk Assessment (CRA). Regional estimates of mortality and burden of disease and injury attributable to these 24 global risk factors are available for download. Estimates are available for risk factor exposures, mortality, and Disability-Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) by age, sex, risk factor and cause. These estimates can be downloaded as Excel files for several regional groupings: WHO regions, Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) by WHO region, World Bank income groups and MDG regions. ...
The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors for 195 countries and territories, and at the subnational level for a subset of countries.. Estimates for deaths, YLLs, YLDs, and DALYs attributable to 84 risk factors by age and sex as well as estimates for summary exposure values (SEVs) by risk are available from the GBD Results Tool for 1990-2017. Select tables published in The Lancet in November 2018 in "Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 84 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017" are also available for download via the "Files" tab above..

This study estimates the cost burden associated with six major illnesses among Americans age 65 or older: chronic lung disease, ischemic heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, pneumonia, and gastrointestinal illness. These illnesses were selected because of their relatively high impact among older populations and because they include environmental exposures as a significant risk factor. A prevalence-based cost-of-illness approach was applied. Medical costs were estimated from Medicare claims data in 2000.

Research has shown that as a persons weight increases, so does the risk for developing a number of serious health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke and certain cancers (e.g. breast and colon). These conditions can lead to a decreased quality of life for individuals and their families and create an increased economic burden on the healthcare system. In 2008, the direct medical costs related to obesity in the United States totaled nearly $147 billion. These health conditions also have great economic impact on society because of productivity and income losses due to absenteeism and premature death. ...

The burden of mental illness on health and productivity in the United States and throughout the world has long been underestimated. Data developed by the massive Global Burden of Disease study conducted by the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and Harvard University, reveal that mental illness, including suicide, accounts for over 15 percent of the burden of disease in established market economies, such as the United States. This is more than the disease burden caused by all cancers.. This Global Burden of Disease study developed a single measure to allow comparison of the burden of disease across many different disease conditions by including both death and disability. This measure was called Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs). DALYs measure lost years of healthy life regardless of whether the years were lost to premature death or disability. The disability component of this measure is weighted for severity of the disability. For example, disability caused by major depression was ...

Having said that, we do believe equally that a very significant, substantial financial package, both for short term and long term, is necessary. How do we define that? Simple. We must avail, or developed countries must avail in the next 5 years, fast track financing. That fast track financing is the equivalent of 1% of the GNP of developed countries. Its around 400 to 500 billion dollars depending on where … what happens to their economies. Of this, 150 billion dollars can be issued with immediate effect because, as we speak today, the IMF is sitting over 283 billion dollars worth of SDRs [Special Drawing Rights or supplementary foreign exchange reserve assets defined and maintained by the International Monetary Fund] that are not allocated. Simply sitting doing absolutely nothing, when we face a threat.. Many of you would say 400 billion dollars is a lot of money.

The population of developed nations is projected to age significantly over the next several decades. Because advanced age is the leading risk factor for Alzheimers disease (AD) and other cognitive disorders, a corollary of this increase in population age will be a substantial rise in the prevalence of cognitively impaired individuals and a resulting enormous socioeconomic burden (Reitz et al., 2011; Hebert et al., 2013). Discovery of new therapeutic approaches that can delay cognitive impairment would significantly mitigate this burden, but such discovery will likely be difficult without improved understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying unhealthy brain aging and aging-related susceptibility to Alzheimers disease. In this regard, accumulating evidence suggests that mechanisms of deleterious brain aging can be elucidated in part by investigation of the molecular machinery regulating neuronal Ca2+ homeostasis.. Numerous studies have found that Ca2+-dependent neuronal processes are ...
Within this chapter, we begin with the invaluable context of the experience of living after cancer as a young person. Then we move to describe the growing body of data indicating the consequences of cancer in patients diagnosed aged as teenagers and young adults (YAs). We identify that, while the variation in definitions used in the literature hamper firm conclusions, specific patterns of substantial morbidity are observed which are distinct from those seen in younger children. When combined with the epidemiology, the overall burden of late effects of adolescents and YA cancer and its treatment are a substantial public health problem. The progress in parts of Europe and the US in bringing together outcomes into medium-sized data sets, combined with the gaps in the data and remaining uncertainties, mean that the time is right for international epidemiological ascertainment of these adverse effects. There are potential benefits for commencing prospective clinical as well retrospective ...
Anyone who has looked at an OPPS proposed or final rule is aware the rules contain a massive amount of data, both in the form of projections and numbers from years past. Most of the time (but not always), CMS data is relatively accurate. However, CMS predictions for costs due to changes for laboratory packaging in 2014 were way off, and hospitals will have to pay for it in 2016.

Methods and Results-Global and regional estimates of acute myocardial infarction incidence and angina and heart failure prevalence by age, sex, and world region in 1990 and 2010 were estimated based on data from a systematic review and nonlinear mixed-effects meta-regression methods. Age-standardized acute myocardial infarction incidence and angina prevalence decreased globally between 1990 and 2010; ischemic heart failure prevalence increased slightly. The global burden of IHD increased by 29 million disability-adjusted life-years (29% increase) between 1990 and 2010. About 32.4% of the growth in global IHD disability-adjusted life-years between 1990 and 2010 was attributable to aging of the world population, 22.1% was attributable to population growth, and total disability-adjusted life-years were attenuated by a 25.3% decrease in per capita IHD burden (decreased rate). The number of people living with nonfatal IHD increased more than the number of IHD deaths since 1990, but ,90% of IHD ...

Cox proportional hazard analysis with costs as dependent variable was used to assess if ?country? was a determinant of productivity costs after controlling for age, gender, disease duration and time integrated disease activity (BASDAI:0-10; higher values indicating higher disease activity) if FC were the outcome or baseline physical function (BASFI:0-10; higher values indicating worse function) if HC costs were the outcome. ...
Schizophrenia is a severe psychotic disorder characterized by significant disturbances in thinking, perception, emotions and behavior. Even if it is not a very frequent disorder, but it is the most burdensome and costly illnesses worldwide. The total population was approximate 1.3 billion and there are approximate 8 million schizophrenic patients in China. Despite the wide-ranging financial and social burdens associated with schizophrenia, but there have been few cost-of-illness studies of this illness in China. To evaluate the economic cost of schizophrenic patients in China. 356 schizophrenic patients who met with DSM-IV criteria were enrolled and investigated with the Economic Burden Questionnaire(EBQ), 299 schizophrenic patients completed the study for 12 months. All the data were combined and classified by researcher. EBQ include all kinds of cost such as direct cost, indirect cost and total cost as well. It was filled in by patients and their close caregivers. Comparison of cost was made between
OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to estimate the annual socioeconomic cost of diseases in Korea. METHODS: We estimate both the direct and indirect costs of diseases in Korea during 2003 using a prevalence-based approach. The direct cost estimates included medical expenditures, traffic costs and caregivers cost, and the indirect costs, representing the loss of production, included lost workdays due to illness and lost earnings due to premature death, which were estimated based on the human capital theory. The cost estimates were reported at three different discount rates (0, 3 and 5%). RESULTS: The cost of diseases in Korea during 2003 was 38.4 trillion won based on 0% discount rate. This estimate represents approximately 5.3% of GDP. The direct and indirect costs were estimated to be 22.5 trillion (58.5% of total cost) and 15.9 trillion won (41.5%), respectively. It was also found that the cost for those aged 40~49 accounted for the largest proportion (21.7%) in relation to age groups. The ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper studies the order of magnitude of the pricing corrections that are needed to implement marginal social cost pricing for all transport modes. With the TRENEN model we study this question for 6 areas in the EU. As marginal social cost pricing may generate important surpluses and deficits for the different modes, we also study the effects of two alternative pricing rules that satisfy budget constraints. We examine the effects of average cost pricing that guarantees a budget balance per mode. The second alternative pricing rule we study is social Ramsey pricing (or marginal social cost pricing with a budget constraint) where we impose a budget constraint at the level of the transport sector. We estimate transport effects and welfare effects of the three pricing rules. We show that average pricing rules may actually do worse than the present pricing rules and that social Ramsey pricing may achieve 50% or more of the maximal welfare gain.

Billion Dollar Brain is a 1967 British Technicolor espionage film directed by Ken Russell and based on the novel of the same name by Len Deighton. The film features Michael Caine as secret agent Harry Palmer, the anti-hero protagonist. The "brain" of the title is a sophisticated computer with which an anti-communist organisation controls its worldwide anti-Soviet spy network. Billion Dollar Brain is the third of the Harry Palmer film series, preceded by The Ipcress File (1965) and Funeral in Berlin (1966). It is the only film in which Ken Russell worked as a mainstream director-for-hire, and the last film of Françoise Dorléac. A fourth film in the series, an adaptation of Horse Under Water, also to be released by United Artists, was tentatively planned but never made. Caine played Palmer in two later films, Bullet to Beijing and Midnight in Saint Petersburg. The films credits show the title as "$1,000,000,000,000,000,000.00" and "BILLION DOLLAR BRAIN" - 1 followed by 18 zeros is actually ...
In many courts of law, the human capital approach derived from labour economics is used to quantify damages incurred by natural persons based on lost income. However, this does not always take the full social cost of the injury into account. It can be argued that a persons life is not only determined by the salary earned throughout the persons lifetime (which then raises the question of what the persons lifetime would actually have been had the damage sustained not been sustained), but also through other activities that bring about enjoyment such as walking, seeing and being able to participate in recreational activities that might have been foreclosed following the maiming of the individual concerned. This means that the human capital approach to quantifying damages may not be optimal in approximating the true extent of damages and other techniques such as hedonic damages, contingency valuation, travel cost, averting behaviour and cost of illness may have to be resorted to. A technique used ...
BACKGROUND:Stroke is a leading cause of mortality and disability worldwide and the economic costs of treatment and post-stroke care are substantial. The Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) provides a systematic, comparable method of quantifying health loss by disease, age, sex, year, and location to provide information to health systems and policy makers on more than 300 causes of disease and injury, including stroke. The results presented here are the estimates of burden due to overall stroke and ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke from GBD 2016. METHODS:We report estimates and corresponding uncertainty intervals (UIs), from 1990 to 2016, for incidence, prevalence, deaths, years of life lost (YLLs), years lived with disability (YLDs), and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs). DALYs were generated by summing YLLs and YLDs. Cause-specific mortality was estimated using an ensemble modelling process with vital registration and verbal autopsy data as inputs. Non-fatal ...

Aim: The main objective was to examine differences in burden between the 343 caregivers to persons with different diagnoses. Methods: A group of elderly recipients of informal care (n = 343) from the general population study Good Aging in Skåne (GÅS) Sweden, were divided into five diagnostic groups: dementia (n = 90), heart and lung diseases (n = 48), stroke (n = 62), fractures (n = 66), depression (n = 40) and the group "other", consisting of different diagnoses (n = 37) according to ICD-10. Differences in burden were analyzed using the Caregiver Burden Scale (CBS), a 22-item scale consisting of five dimensions: general strain, isolation, disappointment, emotional involvement and environmental burden. A total burden index comprises the ...

In this article, we examine the indirect costs (ie, work loss and productivity costs) of employee illness from the employer s perspective. We provide a conceptual framework to help employers consider alternative views with regard to assessing indirect costs and valuing the health care they purchase. First, we discuss the matter of perspective and how an employer should view and assess indirect costs. We briefly review current models of measuring indirect costs, and we critique these models. Then we introduce a simple, conceptual framework based on the ideas of health capital and labor productivity, and we lay out the effects of health investment on indirect costs while considering what employees desire and employers can provide. Finally, we offer an agenda for further research. (J Occup Environ Med. 2001; 43:18 - 24)
Around the globe, work has a heavy impact on health. To better advise policy makers, we assessed the global burden of disease and injury due to selected occupational hazards.

Optimal observation models were selected from hundreds of candidates using a novel approach that treats forecasts akin to receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves. We show that the timing of the epidemic peak can be accurately predicted 4-6 weeks in advance, but that the magnitude of the epidemic peak and the overall burden are much harder to predict. We then discuss how the infection and observation models and the filtering process may be refined to improve forecast robustness, thereby improving the utility of these methods for healthcare decision support.. ...
The Social Cost of Carbon (SCC) is an estimate, in dollars, of the long term damage caused by a one ton increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in a given year; or viewed another way, the benefits of reducing CO2 emissions by that amount in a given year. The SCC is intended to be a comprehensive estimate of climate change damages that includes, among other costs, the changes in net agricultural productivity, risks to human health, and property damages from increased flood risks.

WHY PARTICIPATE?. The PARC Project has been designed for minimal burden on families. We know families are already very busy! Stage 1 uses the data that are already being collected by ASD Service during their childs visits. Stages 2 and 3 are optional and can be done at a familys convenience. Participants may refuse to answer any questions they do not want to answer and remain in the project. Participants may stop at any time and it will in no way affect the care they receive at the hospital. Families may be interested in taking part in other research studies or none at all.. The PARC Project has also been designed through stakeholder collaboration. We have received feedback from consultations with clinicians and parents, so that we can do research in a way that is meaningful for families as well as efficient for those who are providing care and treatment. By conducting this pilot project we will be able to see what parts of this Research Protocol work well and which parts do not, so that in ...

Beck, who is a Mormon, added that some believe the babies "have no quality in life, and are a burden on families.". He also blasted a recent op-ed in The Washington Post calling for women to be given the right to abort their unborn children should they find out they have the condition.. "I think, Nick, quite honestly, if we as a society can embrace killing the most angelic, then who wont we kill?" Beck asked.. Vujicic wondered "how many ...
Heart failure (HF) in the United States represents a significant burden for patients and a tremendous strain on the healthcare system. Patients receiving a diagnosis of HF can be placed into 1 of 4 New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional classifications; the greatest proportion of patients are in the NYHA class II category, which is defined as patients having a slight limitation of physical activity but who are comfortable at rest, and for whom ordinary physical activity results in symptoms of HF. Because the severity of NYHA class II HF may be perceived as mild or unalarming by this definition, the urgency to treat this type of HF may be overlooked ...

What is to be learned? This is an immensely important lesson that this disease provides, and that is cooperation and coordination and preparation between nations. Countries that are wealthy and well prepared in some ways can be of greater assistance to those other nations at a distance, so that the home nation is protected. This provides a much different perspective of foreign aid than has been projected in years past. This provides an opportunity for cooperation as I have said, and coordination. It begins to bring about the value of individuals as intrinsically the same as anyone else; if two people have Ebola and one is worth 5 billion dollars, and one is only worth 50 cents in their physical assets and financial assets, truly they are equal because they are equally dangerous as carriers of this virus. They are equally valuable also as individuals who could carry this pathogen forward, and so their treatment must be equal. You would give the rich man the same treatment as you would the poor ...
So far, he said, bipartisanship isnt working. This gigantic pork bill is a world record for deficit spending, consists exclusively of wasteful liberal spending, and the liberals are complaining that they cant get bipartisan support? They are even more stupid than I thought. The bill could get bipartisan support if they chopped it down to reasonable tax cuts, plus maybe a couple billion dollars in carefully-targeted spending. Id like it better with no new spending, but thats a bipartisan gesture. What they want is absolute submission, and theyre crying because they cant get that, not even from McCain (so far ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Measuring the costs of nosocomial infections. T2 - Methods for estimating economic burden on the hospital. AU - Haley, Robert W.. PY - 1991/9/16. Y1 - 1991/9/16. N2 - To compete more effectively for resources, it is increasingly important for infection control practitioners to estimate the costs of nosocomial infections and the amount of money their infection control programs save the hospital. Studies on costs should estimate both extra length of stay and extra costs attributable to infectious complications. Cost estimates should either adjust charges by a cost to charge ratio, which is relatively easy, or estimate hospital costs directly by detailed cost-accounting, which is comparatively more difficult. If there is insufficient time to measure costs concurrently in every infected patient, comparative studies can be done by comparing infected and uninfected patients matched on characteristics that control for the preexisting differences between them. Diagnosis-related groups ...
Risk assessment can potentially provide an objective framework to synthesise and prioritise climate change risks to inform adaptation policy. However, there are significant challenges in the application of comparative risk assessment procedures to climate change, particularly for the natural environment. These challenges are evaluated with particular reference to the first statutory Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA) and evidence review procedures used to guide policy for the UK government. More progress was achieved on risk identification, screening and prioritisation compared to risk quantification. This was due to the inherent complexity and interdependence of ecological risks and their interaction with socio-economic drivers as well as a climate change. Robust strategies to manage risk were identified as those that coordinate organisational resources to enhance ecosystem resilience, and to accommodate inevitable change, rather than to meet specific species or habitats targets. The assessment also

Our study is the first to examine the most common medical conditions among AD patients that lead to inpatient admissions and ER use, and to contrast AD patients co-morbid diseases and utilization with those of a demographically-matched control group. Earlier studies accounted for just a few co-morbidities in seeking to isolate ADs influence on costs and utilization. Using a comprehensive co-morbidity assessment for AD patients and a demographically-matched control group, we have achieved credible estimates of the independent effect of AD on healthcare costs and utilization. Individuals in the AD cohort had more unique co-morbid medical conditions and higher overall illness burden than those in the control cohort. Use of services was greater for AD patients, with far more inpatient, ER, and home health encounters. Mean excess cost attributed to AD, even after controlling for the greater overall burden of illness, was $2,307.. The AD cohort had considerably higher pharmacy costs [7, 8, 13, 14] ...
Both DALYs and QALYs are forms of HALYs health adjusted life years. Although some have criticized DALYs as essentially an economic measure of human productive capacity for the affected individual,[25][irrelevant citation] this is not so. DALYs do have an age-weighting function that has been rationalized based on the economic productivity of persons at that age, but health-related quality of life measures are used to determine the disability weights, which range from 0 to 1 (no disability to 100% disabled) for all disease. These weights are based not on a persons ability to work, but rather on the effects of the disability on the persons life in general. This is why mental illness is one of the leading diseases as measured by global burden of disease studies, with depression accounting for 51.84 million DALYs. Perinatal conditions, which affect infants with a very low age-weight function, are the leading cause of lost DALYs at 90.48 million. Measles is fifteenth at 23.11 ...
