Burden of Communicable Disease in Europe (BCoDE) toolkit
This application tool facilitates the complex calculation of DALYs by inputting age- gender- and population-specific incidence data and adjustment values for underestimation. It has two embedded tutorials, disease models describing the progression pathway of each disease (interactive visual outcome trees and text), input tables and several output visualisation options. The DALYs is one of the most common composite health measures (CHM) used for global comparisons of overall impact of diseases. These measurements can help national government shape health priorities and policies. CHMs are composite indicators allowing for quantitative assessments of health-related phenomena that cannot be directly measured.
