[Editorial] GBD 2015: from big data to meaningful change

The Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2015 (GBD 2015) brings together the most recent epidemiological data according to year, age, and sex from 195 countries and territories. In a continuation of the partnership between The Lancet and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), this year marks the first of an annual commitment to publish the four capstone GBD papers—on global mortality, years lived with disability, disability-adjusted life-years, and risk factors—in a single issue.
