[Comment] How can we reduce the global burden of disease?

In The Lancet, the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) collaboration1 reports an update on trends of risk factors and health behaviours in 188 countries from 1990 to 2013, as part of the GBD 2013 study. The report is an extraordinary contribution to evidence-based policy making and will be extensively cited. In his editorial commenting on the first GBD 2010 report, Richard Horton welcomed the prospect that the GBD project will evolve into a continuous process of reviewing data as they become available.
