[Correspondence] Causes of child death: comparison of MCEE and GBD 2013 estimates – Authors’ reply

Information about causes of childhood mortality is an important input to global health policy making. Two sets of estimates are available from the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD) 20131 and the Maternal and Child Epidemiology Estimation group (MCEE, formerly known as the Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group [CHERG]). Liu and colleagues2 make a comparison between estimates for 2013 from the two studies and speculate reasons for the differences.
