The number of deaths from specific diseases per 100,000 inhabitants aged 0-75 years. The age distribution is standardized to make the countries comparable. The diseases included are considered possible to treat or to prevent.

Avoidable mortality covers both preventable and treatable causes of mortality. Preventable mortality refers to mortality that mainly can be avoided through effective public health and primary prevention interventions (i.e. before the onset of diseases/injuries, to reduce incidence). Treatable mortality can mainly be avoided through timely and effective health care interventions, including secondary prevention and treatment (after the onset of diseases to reduce case-fatality).

The total avoidable mortality includes a number of infectious diseases, several types of cancers, endocrine and metabolic diseases, as well as some diseases of the nervous, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, genitourinary systems, some diseases related to pregnancy, childbirth and the perinatal period, a number of congenital malformations, adverse effects of medical and surgical care, a list of injuries and alcohol and drug related disorders.
