Summary 

The Vietnam Burden of Disease and Injury Study 2008 provides national estimates for burden due to disease and injuries. The study employs methods used for the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Study. Burden is measured by three metrics: YLLs (years of life lost due to premature mortality), YLDs (healthy years lost due to disability), and DALYs (disability-adjusted life years). Data sources include hospital data, injury surveys, cancer registries, disease notifications, and national health surveys.
