NASBOD (National and Sub-National Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors)
The National and Subnational Burden of Diseases, injuries, and risk factors (NASBOD) is a systematic effort for estimating the magnitude of health loss due to diseases, injuries and risk factors first at national and subsequently at subnational levels in a comparative method and definitions with Global Burden of Diseases 2010. Health policy makers at national and subnational levels, health sector leaders, researchers and citizens could directly use the produced estimates in NASBOD 2014. The NASBOD 2014 provides a “bird’s eye view “of health status of populations across the country to compare the burden of different diseases and their distributions at once. Also, it will estimate the trends in the prevalence, incidence and the trends in the burden or attributed burden of 290 diseases and about 60 risk factors, and incompleteness and misclassification rates for death registration system, at national and subnational levels from 1990 to 2014. To perform this study, different training workshops on Biostatics, systematic review and also professional software were conducted. Comprehensive data banks such as health registry systems and national surveys data were used beneficially.
