COST Action CA18218

Webinar on the WHO/ILO Joint Estimates of the Work-related Burden of Disease and Injury

In the spirit of the Sustainable Development Goals, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) produce the WHO/ILO Joint Estimates of the Work-related Burden of Disease and Injury. The WHO/ILO Joint Estimates quantify the population exposed to occupational risk factors and amount health loss caused by these exposures. Global, regional and national estimates are produced of the numbers of deaths and disability-adjusted life years that can be attributed to exposure to selected occupational risk factors.

The first reports from the WHO/ILO Joint Estimates were published in September 2021. This webinar will provide an overview of the programme of work, outlining the methods, the first set of estimates, and our conclusions from them.
