Acknowledgments This Technical Report was written by Colin Mathers and Gretchen Stevens, with inputs and assistance from Wahyu Retno Mahanani. Estimates of regional deaths by cause for years 2000-2011 were primarily prepared by Colin Mathers, Gretchen Stevens, Jessica Ho, Doris Ma Fat and Wahyu Retno Mahanani, of the Mortality and Burden of Disease Unit in the WHO Department of Health Statistics and Information Systems, in the Health Systems and Innovation Cluster of the World Health Organization (WHO), Geneva, drawing heavily on advice and inputs from other WHO Departments, collaborating United Nations (UN) Agencies, and WHO expert advisory groups and academic collaborators. Many of the inputs to these estimates result from collaborations with Interagency Groups, expert advisory groups and academic groups. The most important of these include the Interagency Group on Child Mortality Estimation (UN-IGME), the UN Population Division, the Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group (CHERG), the Maternal Mortality Expert and Interagency Group (MMEIG), the International Agency for Research on Cancer, WHO QUIVER, and the Global Burden of Disease 2010 Study Collaborating Group. While it is not possible to name all those who provided advice, assistance or data, both inside and outside WHO, we would particularly like to note the assistance and inputs provided by Kirill Andreev, Diego Bassani, Bob Black, Ties Boerma, Phillipe Boucher, Freddie Bray, Tony Burton, Harry Campbell, Doris Chou, Richard Cibulskis, Simon Cousens, Jacques Ferlay, Marta GacicDobo, Richard Garfield, Alison Gemmill, Patrick Gerland, Peter Ghys, Philippe Glaziou, Danan Gu, Ken Hill, Kacem Iaych, Mie Inoue, Robert Jakob, Dean Jamison, Prabhat Jha, Hope Johnson, Joy Lawn, Nan Li, Li Liu, Rafael Lozano, Mary Mahi, Chris Murray, Lori Newman, Mikkel Oestergaard, Max Parkin, Margie Peden, Francois Pelletier, Juergen Rehm, Igor Rudan, Lale Say, Emily Simons, Charalampos Sismanidis, Thomas Spoorenberg, Karen Stanecki, John Stover, Peter Strebel, Emi Suzuki, Tamitza Toroyan, Theo Vos, Tessa Wardlaw, Richard White, John Wilmoth and Danzhen You.
