Webinar on disability weights

Disability weights are a crucial component of Disability-Adjusted LIfe Years, as they allow to translate ill-health into years of life lost due to disability. This webinar will unravel how disability weights are derived and used, and will zoom in on the Global Burden of Disease study disability weights.

This webinar is organized in collaboration with the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
