[Correspondence] Causes of child death: comparison of MCEE and GBD 2013 estimates

Child cause of death (COD) estimates for 2013 produced by the Maternal and Child Epidemiology Estimation group (MCEE, formerly the Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group or CHERG) and the WHO were published (online on Sept 30, 2014) in The Lancet.1 Estimates of child COD from the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Study were later published in The Lancet (online on Dec 17, 2014).2 The GBD authors compared our previously published estimates for 20103 with their new estimates for 2010 providing both differing causes and numbers of deaths than they published previously.
