[Perspectives] Alan Lopez: making everyone count

It’s difficult to squeeze Alan Lopez’s wide-ranging career into a resumé. A leading epidemiologist and global and public health researcher, he is Director of the Global Burden of Disease Group at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne, and has worked for decades on the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) project with his longtime friend and collaborator Christopher Murray. Yet when they first met, in 1986, Murray began by remarking: “Everything you have written about mortality in Africa is wrong!” Far from being offended, Lopez took an instant liking to Murray.
