Center for Injury Research
Injuries are one of the leading causes of death and disability in world, with a greater proportion of burden falling on low and middle income countries. For example, injuries lead to more than 1.1 million deaths in India and are associated with more 61 million disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) each year, which constitutes more than 20% of the global deaths and DALYs due to injuries each year (IHME, 2013). In India, injuries are responsible for about 12% of all deaths and DALYs lost due to all causes. Road traffic Injuries are the most common type of injury and were the tenth leading cause of years of life lost in India in 2013. Efforts to understand and prevent injuries in India do not match the scale of problem. Non-communicable diseases (53.4%) and injuries (11.8%) now constitute the bulk of India’s disease burden.
