[Perspectives] Lalit Dandona: surveying the burden of disease in India

India is not only a large country but a diverse one. As the Director General of the Indian Council of Medical Research, Soumya Swaminathan, points out, “A lot of planning and policy making are done locally, so it’s important for each state to have an idea of their particular disease burden and what their risk factors are and how they’ve changed over time.” For offering precisely this, the India State-level Disease Burden Initiative Collaborators’ Lancet article on variations in epidemiological transition across Indian states in the Global Burden of Disease Study will be welcomed.
