Abstract

TRAEBERT, Jefferson; SILVA, Mariah Fernandes; NICKEL, Daniela Alba  and  SCHNEIDER, Ione Jayce Ceola. Estimating the Burden of Disease attributable to AIDS in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina State, Brazil, 2009. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.3, pp.517-522. ISSN 2237-9622.  https://doi.org/10.5123/S1679-49742015000300017.

OBJECTIVE:

to estimate the burden of disease by AIDS in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil, in 2009.

METHODS:

a descriptive ecological study, using secondary data from Diseases Information System Notification and Mortality Information System; the burden of disease (disability-adjusted life years [DALY]) is the sum of years lost due to premature death (years of life lost [YLL]) and lived with disability (years lived with disability [YLD]).

RESULTS:

2,675.8 DALY were estimated (655.4 DALY/100,000 inhabitants), the YLL component accounted for 78% of DALY; the burden was higher among men (909.5 DALY/100,000 inhabitants) and in the age group 45-59 years (DALY 1423.3/100,000 inhabitants).

CONCLUSION:

the burden was high, and the mortality was primarily responsible for this value, and the highest DALY rates were found in males aged 30-44 years.

Keywords : Burden of Disease; Disability-Adjusted Life Years; AIDS; Ecological Studies; Epidemiology, Descriptive.
