Please provide your feedback to the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 Health Measurement Survey.

The Global Burden of Disease Study of 2010 aims to measure the impact of different diseases, injuries, and risk factors on people's health worldwide. This research updates a groundbreaking study first published in 1993 that changed the way researchers and health experts around the world thought about global health priorities.

The survey will ask you to imagine different health outcomes and compare them to each other. For example: "Imagine two people—the first person is completely blind, and the second person suffers from constant intense back pain. Who is healthier overall?"

By participating in the survey, you will contribute to the scientific understanding of global health problems and ultimately enable policymakers and health care leaders to make better decisions based on stronger evidence. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary, and your responses will be anonymous.

Take the Survey

This study is being led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington in conjunction with Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Queensland, and the World Health Organization.
