Global, regional, and national quality of care of ischaemic heart disease from 1990 to 2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017
By 2030, we seek to reduce premature deaths from non-communicable diseases, including ischaemic heart disease (IHD), by one-third to reach the sustainable development goal (SDG) target 3.4. We aimed to investigate the quality of care of IHD across countries, genders, age groups, and time using the Global Burden of Diseases Study (GBD) 2017 estimates.
Methods and results
We did a principal component analysis on IHD mortality to incidence ratio, disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) to prevalence ratio, and years of life lost to years lived with disability ratio using the results of the GBD 2017. The first principal component was scaled from 0 to 100 and designated as the quality of care index (QCI). We evaluated gender inequity by the gender disparity ratio (GDR), defined as female to male
QCI. From 1990 to 2017, the QCI and GDR increased from 71.2 to 76.4 and …
