On Sept. 4, 2013, the World Bank and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington will launch six regional reports on the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) 2010.

Initially released in December 2012, GBD 2010 produced more than 1 billion estimates of levels and trends in health conditions as far-reaching as road traffic accidents and hearing loss. The new regional reports estimate levels and trends in health conditions in six world regions and compare countries within those regions.

Please join us Sept.4 for a live webcast of a presentation on the new reports by Tim Evans, Director, Health, Nutrition and Population at the World Bank, and Christopher Murray, Director of IHME.

As of Sept. 4, the six reports will be available in multiple languages at www.worldbank.org/health and www.healthmetricsandevaluation.org.
