Abstract

Background: In India, transport injuries persist as leading preventable causes of mortality and morbidity for a large number of people, including children, young adults and elderly people. The objective is to estimate the transport injury-related mortality and morbidity in India over the past decade from 2010-2019.

Methodology: By using the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors 2019 Study (GBD), we analysed mortality, Disability-Adjusted Life-Years (DALYs), Years Lived in Disability (YLDs), Years of Life Lost (YLL), prevalence rate (per 100K) attributed to transport injuries for all ages, in India. Burden is reported in absolute numbers and percentage changes over a decade period from 2010 to 2019; stratified by sex ratio, and age groups, with 95% confidence intervals (CIs).

Results: Transport injuries had accounted for 235,444 deaths (2.51%) in 2019; and 231,177 deaths (2.68%) in 2010. Transport injuries are the leading cause of death among people aged 15-49 years with more than 50% of burden in India. Death-rate due to transport had declined from 18.77 to 16.93 per 100,000 populations over a decade (2010-2019).

Conclusions: Over a decade, progress made in the burden of transport injuries was limited and the burden had started to rise after achieving some success till 2016. India needs to sustain and improve the progress made in order to achieve UN goals for 2030.
