Rates of Premature Adult Death Declining Worldwide
Date:4/30/2010

But even with overall lower mortality, some nations have lost ground, report shows

FRIDAY, April 30 (HealthDay News) -- Island nations -- including Iceland, Australia and Malta -- are among the countries where people are least likely to die when they're aged 15 to 59, according to a new report.

Several former Soviet states and nations in Africa bring up the rear, with some of the worst mortality rates in the world.

Researchers found that death rates have fallen the most in Australia (for men and women) and South Korea (for women). Men in Iceland and women in Cyprus have the lowest death rates of all.

Over the past 40 years, this number on a worldwide level has fallen by 34 percent in women and 19 percent in men. In the United States, the study authors noted a small rate of decline in mortality among women: less than 1.5 percent per year.

The top five countries with the lowest mortality rates for men, in order, are Iceland, Sweden, Malta, the Netherlands and Switzerland. For women, the lowest mortality rates were seen in Cyprus, South Korea, Japan, Greece and Italy.

The researchers noted that around 24 million adults aged 15 to 60 die each year, which is three times the number seen in children under 5 years of age. "The prevention of premature adult death is just as important for global health policy as is t
