Cirrhosis, Alcohol, Mortality Rates


The present study aimed to investigate the impact of national policies and awareness programs on the incidence and mortality of chronic liver diseases, specifically cirrhosis. A multi-year retrospective analysis was conducted utilizing data collected between 1990 and 2017. Results indicate that implementing these interventions was associated with a significant decrease in overall mortality and an estimated annual percentage change in cases of cirrhosis. Furthermore, the data revealed that in 2017, alcohol consumption was a leading contributor to deaths and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) among individuals aged 15-49 years. These findings highlight the importance of continued efforts to address the issue of chronic liver disease through targeted public health interventions.
