Publication Type

In the two decades since the first Global Burden of Disease (GBD) report was released in 1990, the impacts that HIV infection and major depressive disorders (MDDs) have had on medical and public health systems have changed profoundly. The 2010 GBD report indicates that HIV infection has risen from being the 33rd to the 5th contributor to the global burden of disease (Murray et al. 2013). At the same time, the disease burden attributable to MDDs has risen from being the 15th to the 11th.
