Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (GBD 2015) estimates were used in an analysis of national levels of personal healthcare access and quality based on 32 causes of disease and injury considered amenable to healthcare over time. This dataset includes the following global, regional, and national or territory-level estimates for 1990-2015: age-standardized risk-standardized death rates for 32 causes considered amenable to healthcare; the Healthcare Quality and Access (HAQ) Index and individual indices for each of the 32 causes on a scale of 0 to 100; and a frontier based on the relationship between the HAQ Index and the Socio-demographic Index (SDI).

Results were published in The Lancet in May 2017 in "Healthcare Access and Quality Index based on mortality from causes amenable to personal healthcare in 195 countries and territories, 1990–2015: a novel analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015."
