Risk Due to Illness and Accident

Risk Due to Illness and Accident
Six out of ten deaths in the world are due to non-contagious illness; three out ten are due to contagious, reproductive or nutritional diseases; and one out of ten is due to trauma.
Many developing countries have mortality patterns that show increased levels of infectious diseases and risk of death during pregnancy or birth. In addition, these risks are compounded by all types of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and chronic respiratory illnesses that cause most deaths in the developed world.
