Age-standardised mortality rate from cardiovascular disease, cancer and respiratory disease considered preventable in persons aged less than 75 years per 100,000 population.
The basic concept of preventable mortality is that deaths are considered preventable if, in the light of the understanding of the determinants of health at the time of death, all or most deaths from the underlying cause (subject to age limits if appropriate) could mainly be avoided through effective public health and primary prevention interventions.
To ensure that there continues to be a reduction in the rate of premature mortality (deaths to those under 75 years), there needs to be concerted action in both prevention and treatment.
