GBD Neurological Centre

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Neurological Centre was established in 2019. The faculty has agreed to host this new centre at AUT 2019-2023, jointly funded by the Faculty (HES) and the Vice-Chancellor’s strategic fund.

It links NISAN and the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology with the World Health Organisation’s Global Burden of Disease specialist partner, the Institute for Health Metrics Evaluation (University of Washington).

This will create a centre of experts in analytical modelling for the global burden of neurological diseases. Analytical work for the Global Burden of Disease study has begun, covering 6 neurology-related burden estimates.
