Health crisis: From lifestyle disease to malnutrition

National News

But there was an nearly two-fold difference in this disease burden rate between the states in 2016, with Assam, Uttar Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh having the highest rates, and Kerala and Goa the lowest rates. Titled "India State-level Disease Burden Report and Technical Paper", the comprehensive report indicated that although the disease burden due to malnutrition dropped in India substantially since 1990, it was still responsible for 15 percent of the total disease burden in 2016.

As per the Lancet study, Assam, Uttar Pradesh and Chattisgarh have the highest disease burden rates, while Kerala and Goa have the lowest rates.

Mr Naidu said, the report provides comprehensive estimates for each state from 1990 to 2016 for the first time in India. The report said it contributed 5% to the total disease burden.

The burden due to non-communicable disease and injuries has overtaken the burden due to infectious and maternal-child diseases in every state of India, though this happened in some states about three decades ago and in some other states more recently.

Speaking at the function, Anupriya Patel said, "The data and results shared by the India State-level Disease Burden Initiative today in its report, scientific paper, and the online visualization tool will serve as a useful guide for fine-tuning health planning in each state of the country".

"Now non-communicable diseases constitute almost 25% of the disease burden in the states".

According to the report, titled "India State-level Disease Burden" and released by Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu here, indoor air pollution also caused five percent of the disease burden past year.

That brings the total number of millionaires in the US up to approximately 15,356,000, or about one in every 20 Americans. Only a small proportion of high-achieving millennials will be able to overcome the "millennial disadvantage", he added.

The first state-level disease burden and risk factors estimates to improve health and planning for every state in India is a collaborative work by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) and the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

The goal of this Initiative, which was launched in October 2015, was to produce the best possible state-level disease burden and risk factors trends from 1990 onward as part of the Global Burden of Disease study, utilising all identifiable epidemiological data from India and in close engagement with the leading health scientists of India.

Among the leading non-communicable diseases, the largest disease burden or DALY rate increase from 1990 to 2016 was observed for diabetes, at 80%, and ischaemic heart disease, at 34%. After child and maternal malnutrition, which was India's leading risk factor for health loss in 2016 causing 14.6 per cent of the country's total disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), air pollution was the second leading risk factor in India as a whole.

"The population in these states may be suffering higher co-morbidities".

The burden due to household air pollution is highest in the Empowered Action Group states - that receive special development attention from the government - where its improvement since 1990 has also been the slowest. The report also analysed change in mortality rates due to the changes in medical advancements - across Indian states.

The contribution of injuries to the total disease burden has increased in most states since 1990.

Even though Delhi has now been facing a deteriorating quality of air due to pollution, it faces a marginally lower health risks, when compared to states like Bihar.
