Research by IHME and the Department of Health Surveillance, Brazil Ministry of Health produced estimates for age-standardized mortality rates by Brazil municipality for HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. The estimates were generated using de-identified death records from the Brazil Mortality Information System (SIM); case notification data from the Brazil national notification system (SINAN); standardization of vital registration of data based on GBD 2016 methodology; and the application of small area estimation models.

This dataset provides estimates for age-standardized mortality rates by cause and sex at the state level and the municipality level for each state for 2001-2015. Study results were published in BMC Medicine in September 2018 in "Progress toward eliminating TB and HIV deaths in Brazil, 2001–2015: a spatial assessment."
