The World Health Organization and the Global Burden of Disease Study estimated that meningococcal disease was the cause of o deaths worldwide in Preventable causes of death are causes of death related to risk factors which could have been avoided. The World Health Organization has traditionally classified death according to the primary type of disease or r, causes of death may also be classified in terms of preventable risk factors—such as smoking, unhealthy diet, sexual behavior, and reckless driving—which contribute.

Preventable mortality rates were times higher among men than among women across OECD countries ( per population for men, compared with 75 for women). Similarly, mortality rates from treatable causes were about 40% higher among men than women, with a rate of 87 per population for men compared with 62 for women.   Around percent of black women have heart disease, compared to percent of white women and percent of Mexican-American women, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data. low-income country mortality rates than diseases which are easily preventable or treatable.

Since , more women than men have died each year from heart disease and the gap between men and women’s survival continues to widen. Black women in the United States experience unacceptably poor maternal health outcomes, including disproportionately high rates of death related to pregnancy or childbirth. Both societal and health system factors contribute to high rates of poor health outcomes and maternal mortality for Black women, who are more likely to experience barriers to obtaining quality care and often face racial. In some federal states, the differences between women and men are particularly striking. The potentially preventable deaths due to circulatory diseases in Tyrol are % for women and only % for men, whereas for cancer the percentage in Burgenland is % for women, and % for men (see Tables 1 and and2). 2). For circulatory diseases.   Every year, coronary heart disease, the single biggest cause of death in the United States, claims women and men in nearly equal numbers.
