Global burden of disease stroke project


Contact:

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) stroke study aims to generate comparable information on disease burden in 21 regions of the world.

The new round of the GBD stroke study will conduct systemic reviews of studies from 1990 to 2010 to estimate incidence, prevalence, case fatality and cause specific mortality for stroke risk factors. NISAN is the international headquarters for the stroke project and contributes to the GBD study.  The project aims to collate the most comprehensive database of all epidemiological data on stroke. We invite researchers to submit relevant data on stroke incidence, prevalence and outcome.
