Global disease burden (GBD) studies are multinational, 20-year old series of projects mainly guided by IHME from university of Washington. In these projects many good findings have published in top ranked journals, but there are challenges about how these findings might come to practice and policy making. Whether or not any connection might be found between reviews and GBD results. Me as a co-author in several papers of these projects would discuss about these issues in an interactive meeting.
