Burden of Suicide

 

Goal 3 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs) is to "Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages". Target 3.4 is: By 2030, reduce by one-third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being. Suicide mortality is a key outcome indicator (indicator 3.4.2) to monitor progress on mental health interventions.

This data visualization presents estimates of suicide mortality and measures of burden of suicides, including disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), years of life lost due to premature death (YLLs), and years lived with disability (YLDs) by age, sex at regional, subregional and national levels in the Region of the Americas from 2000 to 2019.
