Jeffrey Stanaway and colleagues (Sept 10, p 1081)1 published a study giving an estimation of 1·45 million deaths per year worldwide for hepatitis. The research was based on Global Burden of Disease 2013 data from the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), indicating a higher mortality rate from hepatitis than from HIV in 2016.
