[Editorial] Life, death, and disability in 2016

In this week’s issue of The Lancet, we publish the latest global, regional, and national estimates and analyses from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2016 (GBD 2016), covering the period 1990 to 2016. The GBD is a herculean effort that annually tracks disease burden across countries, time, age, and sex. In 2016, there were an estimated 128·8 million livebirths and 54·7 million deaths. The good news is that globally, mortality rates have decreased across all age groups over the past five decades.
