Violent death is a serious problem in the US. Previous research showing US rates of violent death compared with other high-income countries used data that are more than a decade old.
In this Perspective, Wayne Hall and Chris Doran discuss Lightwood and Glantz’s findings and the implications for tobacco control programs in the US, which are currently poorly funded.
To calculate a reliable estimate of the population prevalence of Down syndrome in the US.
Multidisciplinary care (MDC) programs have been proposed as a way to alleviate the cost and morbidity associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the US.
The opioid epidemic in the United States (US) continues to generate significant increases in morbidity and mortality with no sign of decline. Overdose education and naloxone distribution (OEND) programs are highly effective at preventing opioid overdose mortality. We assessed the geographical distribution of overdose mortality and OEND programs in the US.
Health care-associated infections (HAIs) are harmful and costly and can result in substantial morbidity for hospitalized children; however, little is known about national trends in HAIs in neonatal and pediatric populations. Our objective was to determine the incidence of HAIs among a large sample of hospitals in the United States caring for critically ill children from 2007 to 2012.
Despite control efforts, salmonellosis continues to cause an estimated 1.2 million infections in the United States (US) annually. We describe the incidence of salmonellosis in the US and introduce a novel approach to examine the epidemiologic similarities and differences of individual serotypes.
Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a chronic vasculitis affecting approximately 230,000 Americans. Limited data exist on the healthcare resource utilization and costs attributable to GCA. The objective of this study was to estimate the cost of illness in patients with GCA in the US.
Investigate the epidemiology of lawn mower-related injuries to children in the US.
We sought to understand the multilevel syndemic factors that are concurrently contributing to the HIV epidemic among women living in the US. We specifically examined community, network, dyadic, and individual factors to explain HIV vulnerability within a socioecological framework.
