Global Health Estimates (GHE)

The WHO Global Health Estimates provide a comprehensive and comparable assessment of mortality and loss of health due to diseases and injuries for all regions of the world.

The latest WHO assessment of deaths by cause is for the years 2000-2011. Global and regional summary tabulations are available below, and can also be accessed interactively through the WHO Global Health Observatory. Due to changes in data and some methods, the 2000-2011 estimates are not comparable to previous WHO estimates for 2008 or 2004 for countries without good death registration data.
