Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Disease
  • Internal medicine
  • Public health

Deborah Carvalho Malta spends much of her time researching Global health, Demography, Environmental health, Gerontology and Years of potential life lost. The various areas that Deborah Carvalho Malta examines in her Global health study include Life expectancy and Disease burden, Disease, Cause of death. Deborah Carvalho Malta studies Demography, focusing on Mortality rate in particular.

Her work deals with themes such as Malnutrition, Epidemiology, Public health and Risk factor, which intersect with Environmental health. Her Gerontology research incorporates elements of Rural area, Overweight and Sample size determination. As part of the same scientific family, Deborah Carvalho Malta usually focuses on Years of potential life lost, concentrating on Epidemiological transition and intersecting with Adolescent health.

Her most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 328 diseases and injuries for 195 countries, 1990–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (8226 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex-specific mortality for 282 causes of death in 195 countries and territories, 1980-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (3096 citations)
  • Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived with Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life-Years for 29 Cancer Groups, 1990 to 2017: A Systematic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study (2992 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental health, Demography, Gerontology, Humanities and National health. Her research in Environmental health intersects with topics in Occupational safety and health, Risk factor and Public health, Health promotion. Deborah Carvalho Malta performs multidisciplinary studies into Health promotion and Promotion in her work.

Her studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Cross-sectional study, Global health, Epidemiology and Confidence interval. The concepts of her Global health study are interwoven with issues in Life expectancy, Years of potential life lost and Disease burden. She has included themes like Overweight and Injury prevention in her Gerontology study.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (37.08%)
  • Demography (28.72%)
  • Gerontology (25.53%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Demography (28.72%)
  • Environmental health (37.08%)
  • Humanities (18.24%)

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

Deborah Carvalho Malta mainly investigates Demography, Environmental health, Humanities, Epidemiology and Pandemic. Deborah Carvalho Malta works on Demography which deals in particular with Mortality rate. Her Mortality rate research incorporates themes from Cause of death, Small-Area Analysis and Disease burden.

Deborah Carvalho Malta studied Environmental health and Confidence interval that intersect with Ecological study. Deborah Carvalho Malta works mostly in the field of Epidemiology, limiting it down to topics relating to Public health and, in certain cases, Risk factor, as a part of the same area of interest. Her Years of potential life lost study is related to the wider topic of Life expectancy.

Between 2019 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (770 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (770 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (770 citations)

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

  • Disease
  • Internal medicine
  • Public health

Deborah Carvalho Malta mostly deals with Environmental health, Demography, Public health, Global health and Disease burden. Her study in Environmental health is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Developing country, Measles vaccine and Vaccination. Her work in the fields of Mortality rate overlaps with other areas such as Pandemic.

The Public health study combines topics in areas such as Mass drug administration, Lymphatic system, Epidemiology and Risk factor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Life expectancy, Injury prevention, Incidence and Tropical disease in addition to Global health. Her study in the field of Years of potential life lost also crosses realms of Quality-adjusted life year.
