The Daily Mail has reported (8/28) in Substance abuse and mental disorders are now killing more people globally than HIV, diabetes and TB, that substance abuse and mental disorders are causing more people to lose their lives or become sick than from HIV, tuberculosis and diabetes, according to a new worldwide study. The researchers pointed out that most of the 232,000 deaths were a result of substance abuse.

The landmark and highly informational 2010 Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD), the largest research of public health ever conducted, found that mental illness and substance abuse caused most of the non-fatal illnesses worldwide, contributing to 22.8% of cases.

According to Substance abuse and mental disorders are now killing more people globally than HIV, diabetes and TB, Professor Harvey Whiteford said, “Mental and substance use disorders are major contributors to the global burden of disease and their contribution is rising, especially in developing countries. Cost-effective interventions are available for most disorders but adequate financial and human resources are needed to deliver these interventions.”
