Mortality and global health estimates

Age-standardized death rates: Measuring how many people die each year and why they have died is one of the most important means – along with gauging how various diseases and injuries are affecting the living – of assessing the effectiveness of a country’s health system. Having those numbers helps health authorities determine whether they are focusing on the right kinds of public health actions that will reduce the number of preventable deaths and disease. Globally, around 54.5 million people die each year. One in eight of these deaths occurs in children under the age of 5. Most of these preventable deaths in children occur in low- and middle-income countries.
