GBD 2016: Financing Global Health Data Interactive


This interactive visualization, presented by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), allows users to view global health financing data from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (GBD 2016) released in September of 2017, through a flow graphic, trends chart, and a comparative map. By refining the selections of each graphic, users can filter by year, health focus, region, and source of financing.

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) studies form the largest-ever systematic effort to describe the distribution and causes of a wide array of major diseases, injuries, and health risk factors by examining national and sub-national data across populations worldwide from 1990 to the present. Led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, it is a global effort, with more than 2,300 researchers from 130 countries, including numerous low- and middle-income countries, participating in the most recent update. Estimates from the GBD study may differ from national statistics due to differences in data sources and methodology.
