National Burden of Disease (NBD)


The Andhra Pradesh Burden of Disease (APBD) Study was started by the institute in 1993, immediately after publication of the Global Burden of Disease Study results in the World Bank’s World Development Report, 1993). Since then the Institute has pursued many connected areas of research to build  national capacity in quantification of disease burden. These include studies on;
(a) causes of death, (b) health status measurement, (c) indirect estimation of
mortality (d) small area analysis of mortality, and (e) descriptive epidemiology.
