Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

Ali H. Mokdad mainly investigates Demography, Global health, Gerontology, Environmental health and Years of potential life lost. His Demography study combines topics in areas such as Young adult, Life expectancy, Epidemiology and Incidence. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Disease burden, Disease, Cause of death, Maternal death and Pediatrics.

He has included themes like Body mass index, Overweight, Obesity and Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, Public health in his Gerontology study. His research investigates the link between Environmental health and topics such as Risk factor that cross with problems in Risk assessment and Kidney disease. In his study, Non-communicable disease is inextricably linked to Disability-adjusted life year, which falls within the broad field of Years of potential life lost.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6893 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)
  • Prevalence of obesity, diabetes, and obesity-related health risk factors, 2001. (4852 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Ali H. Mokdad mainly focuses on Environmental health, Demography, Public health, Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and Gerontology. Ali H. Mokdad combines subjects such as Psychological intervention, Disease, Health care and Risk factor with his study of Environmental health. His work carried out in the field of Demography brings together such families of science as Global health, Years of potential life lost, Epidemiology and Incidence.

His Global health research includes themes of Verbal autopsy, Pediatrics and Disease burden. His Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Odds ratio, Diabetes mellitus and Mental health, Psychiatry, Depression. His Gerontology course of study focuses on National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and Endocrinology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (36.74%)
  • Demography (33.54%)
  • Public health (25.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Demography (33.54%)
  • Environmental health (36.74%)
  • Mortality rate (16.77%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Demography, Environmental health, Mortality rate, Incidence and Years of potential life lost. The various areas that he examines in his Demography study include Disease burden, Burden of disease, Disease, Cause of death and Global health. His Environmental health research incorporates themes from Psychological intervention, Oral rehydration therapy, Public health, Developing country and Risk factor.

His Mortality rate study combines topics in areas such as Death registration, Fertility and Total fertility rate. Ali H. Mokdad interconnects Stroke, Verbal autopsy and Migraine in the investigation of issues within Incidence. His work deals with themes such as Occupational safety and health, Epidemiology and Population health, which intersect with Years of potential life lost.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Health effects of dietary risks in 195 countries, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (904 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national burden of stroke, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (564 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national burden of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (484 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

His primary scientific interests are in Global health, Demography, Years of potential life lost, Mortality rate and Environmental health. His Global health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Incidence, Health policy, Pandemic, Life expectancy and Socioeconomic status. The Demography study combines topics in areas such as Hepatitis B, Viral hepatitis, Cirrhosis, Hepatitis C and Liver disease.

His Years of potential life lost study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Disability-adjusted life year and Epidemiology. His Mortality rate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fertility, Total fertility rate and Disease burden, Disease, Cause of death. His Environmental health research integrates issues from Context, Case fatality rate, Public health and Risk factor.
