Minus Related Pages Developmental disabilities are a group of conditions due to an impairment in physical, learning, language, or behavior areas. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move for example, crawling and walking. However, the developmental milestones give a general idea of the changes to expect as a child gets older.
VolumeIssue16—22 SeptemberPages Global Health Metrics Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for diseases and injuries for countries, — The Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study GBD provides a comprehensive assessment of prevalence, incidence, and years lived with disability YLDs for causes in countries and territories from to Methods We estimated prevalence and incidence for diseases and injuries and sequelae, their non-fatal consequences.
We used DisMod-MR 2. For some causes, we used alternative modelling strategies if incidence or prevalence needed to be derived from other data.
YLDs were estimated as the product of prevalence and a disability weight for all mutually exclusive sequelae, corrected for comorbidity and aggregated to cause level. We updated the Socio-demographic Index SDIa summary indicator of income per capita, years of schooling, and total fertility rate.
Despite mostly stagnant age-standardised rates, the absolute number of YLDs from non-communicable diseases has been growing rapidly across all SDI quintiles, partly because of population growth, but also the ageing of populations.
The largest absolute increases in total numbers of YLDs globally were between the ages of 40 and 69 years.
Men had higher age-standardised rates of substance use disorders, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancers, and all injuries apart from sexual violence. Globally, we noted much less geographical variation in disability than has been documented for premature mortality.
Interpretation The decrease in death rates since for most causes has not been matched by a similar decline in age-standardised YLD rates. For many large causes, YLD rates have either been stagnant or have increased for some causes, such as diabetes. As populations are ageing, and the prevalence of disabling disease generally increases steeply with age, health systems will face increasing demand for services that are generally costlier than the interventions that have led to declines in mortality in childhood or for the major causes of mortality in adults.
Up-to-date information about the trends of disease and how this varies between countries is essential to plan for an adequate health-system response.

An early and economic screening method for leprosy is required in endemic countries. Three broad transitions explain much of the changing pattern in global health: demographic changes, changes in causes of death, and changes in causes of disability.
