Fig. 6

Comparison of estimated disease burden over age-group at acute infection for disease model X 2, with and without heterogeneity in disease progression rates (main panel): heterogeneity leads to an overall lower burden. The two smaller plots show disease burden by age-group split into YLD and YLL, for the no-heterogeneity (upper right panel) and heterogeneity (lower right panel) model variants. Capped lines indicated 95% quantile intervals
