Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation

institute for health metrics and evaluation, institute for health metrics and evaluation university of washington
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation IHME is a research institute working in the area of global health statistics and impact evaluation at the University of Washington in Seattle The Institute is headed by Dr Christopher JL Murray, a physician and health economist, and professor at the University of Washington Department of Global Health, which is part of the School of Medicine IHME's goal, as stated on the Institute's website, is "to identify the best strategies to build a healthier world By measuring health, tracking program performance, finding ways to maximize health system impact, and developing innovative measurement systems, IHME provides a foundation for informed decision-making that ultimately will lead to better health globally" IHME 20111 IHME conducts research and trains scientists, policymakers, and the public in health metrics concepts, methods, and tools Its mission includes judging the effectiveness and efficacy of health initiatives and national health systems IHME's work seeks to be complementary to the United Nations' work in the World Health Organization in that it shares many tasks but is independent from member countries23

IHME gathers health-related data from all available sources It develops innovative analytical tools to track trends in mortality, diseases, and risk factors, and capsulizes many of its research findings in data visualizations4 It evaluates interventions such as vaccines, malaria control policies, cancer screenings, and birth care To enable researchers to replicate IHME's work and to foster new research, IHME created the Global Health Data Exchange GHDx where methods and results are cataloged and freely accessible IHME is also committed to expanding the field of health metrics by training students at the post-baccalaureate and post-graduate levels

Historyedit

IHME was launched in June 2007 based on a core grant of $105 million primarily funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation5 Among its earliest projects was to produce new estimates of mortality rates, which were published in The Lancet in September 20076 The Institute updated these in 20107 and again in 20148 Maternal,9 child, and adult mortality10 estimates have been published, as well1112 Founding board members included Chair Julio Frenk, Dean of the Harvard School of Public Health; Harvey Fineberg, President of the Institute of Medicine; Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Prime Minister of Norway; Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Minister of Health for Ethiopia; K Srinath Reddy, President of the Public Health Foundation of India; Tomris Turmen, President of the International Children's Center and Head of the Department of Pediatrics/Newborn Medicine at the University of Ankara Medical School in Ankara, Turkey; Lincoln Chen, President of the China Medical Board; Jane Halton, who has served as Secretary of the Department of Health and Ageing in Australia, as well as the Department of Finance; and David Roux, Co-Chief Executive of Silver Lake Partners13

Current board members14 are Frenk; Fineberg; Chen; Halton; and Roux, in addition to Stephen J Cucchiaro, Chief Investment Officer of Windhaven Investment Management; Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer CMO for England; and John W Stanton, managing director of Trilogy Partnership

In 2011, IHME co-sponsored the first Global Health Metrics & Evaluation conference in Seattle with The Lancet, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, and University of Queensland School of Population Health15

In 2017, the Gates Foundation provided IHME with another $279 million grant16

Researchedit

IHME also has launched policy reports on a wide range of topics, including a June 2010 report on child and maternal mortality The findings were updated in 2014 In 2009, IHME launched its series of Financing Global Health policy reports1718 The initial report led to meetings with staff from the US House Foreign Affairs Committee and with a task force appointed by US President Barack Obama to guide the funding of his new Global Health Initiative Annual updates have been published since then

Recent publications have included estimations of causes of death worldwide,19 the incidence of HIV, TB, and malaria,20 as well as obesity,2122 cigarette smoking,23 heart disease,24 and small area estimation of diabetes rates in the United States25 IHME has also worked with other organizations on projects For example, IHME researchers helped create the 2010 WHO World Malaria Report,26 generating all the estimates for insecticide-treated nets27 IHME has also collaborated on country-level research projects, including a partnership with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to help create a health surveillance system to track disease trends and inform policy There is a list of publications at IHME's website

Global Burden of Diseaseedit

Further information: Global Burden of Disease Study

In the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors GBD Study 2010, a worldwide consortium of 500 researchers, coordinated by IHME measured the impact of more than 290 health conditions and 67 health risk factors worldwide28 The GBD enterprise produced estimates in 21 regions around the world for disability-adjusted life years by age and sex for the past two decades Part of this research has involved conducting in-person surveys in several countries and gathering health information through a website survey The team created a cause of death database that includes 60 years of data, or almost 800 million deaths To illustrate the findings, IHME released a suite of interactive data visualizations, which are available to the public

The aim is to allow policymakers and other decision-makers to "compare the effects of different diseases – such as cancer versus depression – that kill people prematurely and cause ill health," to show disease trends over time, and to inform policy, IHME states on its website

It has been labeled "the most comprehensive review of the state of humanity's health ever undertaken"29

The UK and China are among the countries working with IHME to generate subnational burden of disease estimates at the county and province levels

In January 2014, IHME began releasing updates to the work, called the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors GBD Study 2013 The work generated over 1 billion estimates of health outcomes30 GBD estimates are now being updated annually

Some of the findings have been controversial In 2012, IHME researchers estimated 12 million people died from malaria in 2010, double the WHO's estimate3132

Disease Control Priorities Networkedit

Further information: Disease Control Priorities Project

The Disease Control Priorities Network project generates cost-effectiveness estimates for a range of health interventions A team of demographers, statisticians, economists, and other experts are studying how to improve the allocation of resources among interventions, technologies, hospitals, and other service delivery platforms They are working in multiple countries, including the US, India, and South Africa Their cost-effectiveness work has revealed some hidden connections For example, a 2010 report showed improving girls' education in poor countries is the most effective way to reduce child mortality,33 which was a surprise for some people34

An effort launched in 2011 called Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity ABCE involves collecting evidence and analyzing data to improve the cost-effectiveness and equity of health systems in Colombia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Lebanon, Uganda, and Zambia The project examines four components that affect health care delivery: access to health facilities, bottlenecks limitations on the supply side, costs, and equity across populations The work includes in-depth facility surveys and inventories across a range of service delivery platforms; additional data is collected in countries with high HIV/AIDS burdens through exit interviews and chart extraction

A 2013 report concluded that neonatal and maternal mortality in Ghana could be best improved not with sophisticated maternity care but with better transportation infrastructure35

Population Health Metrics Research Consortium projectedit

The Population Health Metrics Research Consortium created new methods for tracking health intervention coverage in low-resource settings The methods have been used to measure mortality, causes of death, and incidence of major illnesses where data are incomplete36 Researchers collected data in India, Mexico, the Philippines, and Tanzania

IHME's work on estimating mortality has been at times controversial In 2009, IHME published a study on maternal mortality37 which some advocacy groups tried to suppress – worried that results showing a decline in mortality would make it harder to fund-raise The WHO also initially disagreed with the new results, but later revised their estimates in agreement with those of IHME38

Malaria Control Policy Assessment projectedit

The Malaria Control Policy Assessment project evaluates the effectiveness of malaria-control interventions in Uganda and Zambia by analyzing their effect on child mortality and producing estimates at the national and local levels

United States public health researchedit

IHME conducts US research, including estimates of mortality, life expectancy, risk factors, health disparities, and disease prevalence IHME has compiled national and local health trends and integrated multiple data sources to monitor disparities in chronic diseases

A 2013 report, the State of US Health,39 looked at trends in premature deaths due to injury or disease, and demonstrated the major health threat stemming from behavioral risk factors such as poor diet and sedentary lifestyles It concluded that dietary factors cause more deaths each year than cancer or smoking40 The results included life expectancy trends broken down by state and county

First Lady Michelle Obama cited the research in her campaign to improve Americans' diets and increase their level of physical activity41

A paper published in the journal Population Health Metrics in June 2011 showed that life expectancy was rising in some poorer US counties – especially in the South42 – a surprising result which was widely discussed43

Other research projects include the Salud Mesoamérica 2015 Initiative, which focuses on inequalities in health outcomes and access in southern Mexico and Central America; Gavi Full Country Evaluations, which evaluates immunization programs in Bangladesh, India, Mozambique, Uganda and Zambia; and HealthRise, a partnership with Medtronic Philanthropy to evaluate programs targeting diabetes and heart disease, and sponsor small grants to make improvements

In 2014, IHME announced the establishment of the University of Washington Center for Demography and Economics of Aging, funded by the National Institute on Aging NIA It is one of 14 NIA Demography Centers at leading universities and policy organizations around the United States

Global Health Data Exchange GHDxedit

In March 2011, IHME launched the Global Health Data Exchange or GHDx, which indexes and hosts information about microdata, aggregated data, and research results with a focus on health-related and demographic datasets At launch, the site listed about 1,000 datasets; as of 2015, there are more than 30,000 As part of a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC, GHDx includes 35 years of CDC data on child and maternal health GHDx uses the Drupal 7 open source content management system and Apache SOLR for search The site includes visualization and GIS tools, and has been noted by the health and global health communities44

Degree Programsedit

IHME offers two types of global health fellowships, plus master's degrees and PhD programs45

Fundersedit

IHME receives core grant funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation46 and the state of Washington The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC; Inter-American Development Bank; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute; Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health; Medtronic Philanthropy; and the National Institute on Aging have also contributed funding through project grants and contracts

Receptionedit

Initially, some within the World Health Organization had criticized IHME for trying to do the work that WHO already does There had also been tension between UNICEF and IHME because a report from the latter showed "lackluster progress" on child death rates316

The 2010 Global Burden of Disease report was criticized for its lack of transparency of methods and data as well as its use of complex statistical methods to fill in data gaps when reliable statistics were unavailable Thomas Bollyky, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, called for more transparency The report was also criticized for its use of verbal autopsies because many diseases have similar symptoms, leading to potential mistakes2947

Igor Rudan and Kit Yee Chan argue that the emergence of IHME introduced competition to the field of global health metrics, which was previously a field where WHO maintained a monopoly: "The GBD initiative has emerged as a well-organised and rapidly growing collaboration that is now seriously challenging WHO's role in generating global health estimates"48

Rudan and Chan also note that IHME "struggled to generate support, legitimacy, and acceptable for their findings" after publishing the 2010 Global Burden of Disease Study, due to concerns of lack of transparency, as well as the existence of parallel estimates of disease burden from WHO48

The World Health Organization did not acknowledge the GBD 2010 estimates4816

The Global Burden of Disease Study GBD 2013 expanded collaboration and increased transparency but "fell short of allowing full independent replication of all results"48
