#GBD studies of 204 countries highlight the enormous health toll of 🚬 and authors urge all countries to do more to ⬇️ tobacco use. See
89% of smokers began by age 25—evidence suggests an individual is unlikely to become a smoker if they do not start by this age.

This morning, we're releasing a major change in our COVID-19 model (➡️ We're now incorporating excess mortality to approximate the total COVID-19 death rate worldwide.
Our understanding of the magnitude of COVID-19 to date has been much worse than what we have been thinking. 🗓️ We are also extending our COVID-19 projections out to September 1, 2021 (they previously went out to August 1, 2021).
With this total COVID-19 mortality adjustment, these are the countries that we estimate currently have the highest total COVID-19 deaths .vs. reported COVID-19 deaths: Image

NEW #GBDStudy: Scale-up of spending on #HIV/AIDS, #tuberculosis & #malaria, compared with improvements in health outcomes, suggests a nuanced relationship, & that such that increases in spending do not always results in improvements in outcomes
#GBDStudy Spotlight on #HIV/#AIDS: For all but one of 135 countries, HIV/AIDS spending per capita has increased since 2000; however, 73 countries had reductions in HIV/AIDS incidence, while 62 had increases in incidence (1/3) ImageImage
#GBDStudy Spotlight on #Malaria: Malaria had most consistent decreases in outcomes across countries as spending has increased, with all but 3 of the remaining malaria endemic low-income & middle-income countries seeing reductions in malaria incidence (2/3) ImageImage
