Cheng PY, Palekar R, Azziz-Baumgartner E, Iuliano D, Alencar AP, Bresee J, Oliva O, de Souza Mde F, Widdowson MA - Influenza Other Respir Viruses (2015)

Bottom Line: We estimated influenza-associated deaths for 35 PAHO countries during 2002-2008.Annually, PAHO countries report registered deaths.For the 35 PAHO countries, we estimated an annual mean influenza-associated mortality rate of 2·1/100,000 among <65-year olds, 31·9/100 000 among those 65-74 years, and 161·8/100,000 among those ≥ 75 years.

fig02: Mean annual influenza mortality in Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) region, 2002–2008.

Mentions: We summed the average number of influenza-associated respiratory and circulatory deaths in each age stratum calculated for each country by year from 2002 to 2008, either via modeling, etiologic fraction applied to mortality data, or extrapolation. On average, a mean (95% CI) of 16 755 (5822–34 797) influenza deaths occurred in persons 0–64 years, 13 541 in persons 65–74 years (5512–27 837), and 54 804 (29 547–97 636) in persons aged ≥75 years. An estimated total 85 100 (40 880–160 270) persons died every year as a result of influenza in the PAHO region, for a rate of 10 influenza deaths per 100 000 person-years (Table3). The mean annual influenza mortality in PAHO region by country (2002–2008) is shown in Figure2.
