Global Burden of Disease Studies

Professor Lidia Morawska has made significant contributions to risk assessment studies of Global Burden of Disease (GBD) since 2012, an international work of fundamental importance as these publications are considered in policy settings by the World Health Organisation and other countries around the world. Countless papers have been published in The Lancet. One of the papers, which has made a significant impact around the world, listed the key risks to which people are exposed in individual countries, which has been used as a guidance for policy makers around the world as each country is looking at prioritizing how to address this : 380(9859): 2224-2260, 2012.
