Mortality – years of life lost due to the disease
Disability - decrease in healthy or functional years of life due to disease or injury
(Experts decide based on previous research that some domain of function is reduced by some percent over so many years due to disease/injury.)
DALYs, thus, are estimates of health lost due to death and disability.
