Summary 

Estimates from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (GBD 2019) were used to create the Healthcare Access and Quality (HAQ) Index overall and for select age groups in 204 countries and territories from 1990 to 2019. For GBD 2019, HAQ Index construction methods were updated to use the arithmetic mean of scaled mortality-to-incidence ratios (MIRs) and risk-standardised death rates (RSDRs) for 32 causes of death that should not occur in the presence of timely, quality health care.

This dataset contains estimates for the overall and age-group specific indices along with each unscaled HAQ Index indicator by location in 1990 and 2019. Code used to produce the estimates is also available for download.

Results were published in The Lancet Global Health in December 2022 in “Assessing performance of the Healthcare Access and Quality Index, overall and by select age groups, for 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019.”
