Abstract

Following the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD), disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) have been widely used as a summary measure of population health. The DALY metric is a comprehensive measurement of population health, enabling comparison among groups. However, the available data and reliance on estimates to supplement the data gap require contextualization at the national level, and the outcomes of which are more appropriate for national policymakers. The Korean National Burden of Disease (KNBD) study was initiated by the Research and Development Project of the Ministry of Health and Welfare, funded by a 5-year grant from 2013, to contextualize the GBD method to the Korean population. Here, we provide a comprehensive overview of the KNBD study with its achievements and challenges and discuss the implications for public health policies.
