From the team at NY Requirements, this infographic analyzes which transmissible diseases are the biggest health burdens in every country from around the world. The research includes data from the World Health Organization's Global Health Estimates, using data from 40 different communicable diseases. According to the infographic, it was found that the six transmissible diseases around the world that pose the biggest problems are lower respiratory infections (131 countries), HIV/AIDS (28 countries), Tuberculosis (10 countries), Diarrheal diseases (5 countries), Malaria (4 countries) and Measles (2 countries). Despite lower respiratory infections being the most common large health burden in countries, the biggest issue comes out of India, where Tuberculosis has resulted in 24,836.1 disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) lost. The only other country in the top ten that's greatly affected by Tuberculosis is fourth ranked Indonesia (4,985.2 DALYs lost). Of the six diseases that span all of these countries, only three appear multiple times each in the top ten, with those being Tuberculosis, lower respiratory infections and HIV/AIDS.
