Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Disease

Zulfiqar A Bhutta mainly investigates Global health, Environmental health, Pediatrics, Psychological intervention and Demography. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Life expectancy, Millennium Development Goals and Gerontology. The concepts of his Life expectancy study are interwoven with issues in Disease burden and Epidemiological transition.

His Environmental health research includes elements of Wasting, Malnutrition and Risk factor. His Pediatrics research includes themes of Developing country, Pregnancy, Child mortality, Infant mortality and Incidence. Zulfiqar A Bhutta is involved in the study of Demography that focuses on Mortality rate in particular.

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)
  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks in 188 countries, 1990-2013: A systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (4452 citations)

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

Zulfiqar A Bhutta focuses on Psychological intervention, Environmental health, Pediatrics, Public health and Pregnancy. His study explores the link between Psychological intervention and topics such as Child mortality that cross with problems in Millennium Development Goals. His research in Environmental health intersects with topics in Global health, Micronutrient, Developing country, Disease burden and Malnutrition.

He interconnects Life expectancy, Mortality rate, Gerontology and Health policy in the investigation of issues within Global health. His studies deal with areas such as Epidemiology, Incidence, Relative risk, Diarrhea and Infant mortality as well as Pediatrics. His research integrates issues of Health care and Reproductive health in his study of Public health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Psychological intervention (29.07%)
  • Environmental health (29.23%)
  • Pediatrics (26.66%)

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

  • Environmental health (29.23%)
  • Psychological intervention (29.07%)
  • Public health (19.88%)

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

Environmental health, Psychological intervention, Public health, Malnutrition and Global health are his primary areas of study. His Environmental health research integrates issues from Sanitation, Health care, Developing country, Low and middle income countries and Meta-analysis. Zulfiqar A Bhutta combines subjects such as Intervention, Epidemiology, MEDLINE and Family medicine with his study of Psychological intervention.

His work focuses on many connections between Malnutrition and other disciplines, such as Micronutrient, that overlap with his field of interest in Anemia and Pregnancy. Zulfiqar A Bhutta has researched Global health in several fields, including Demography and Sustainable development. His study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Body mass index, Years of potential life lost, Adolescent health and Epidemiological transition.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national burden of traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of disease Study 2016 (248 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national burden of multiple sclerosis 1990–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (236 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 (224 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Psychological intervention, Environmental health, Global health, Demography and Malnutrition. His studies in Psychological intervention integrate themes in fields like Coronavirus disease 2019, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, MEDLINE and Infant mortality. His Environmental health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Meta-analysis, Micronutrient, Food fortification, Developing country and Risk factor.

His Global health research incorporates elements of Adolescent health, Epidemiology and Disease burden. His Demography research includes elements of Life expectancy, Years of potential life lost, Peer review and Epidemiological transition. As part of the same scientific family, Zulfiqar A Bhutta usually focuses on Mortality rate, concentrating on Incidence and intersecting with Quality-adjusted life year.
