“Worldwide, more  than 50 million people have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year, and it is estimated that about half the world’s population will have one or more TBIs over their lifetime.”  More than 80% of these brain injuries occur in the developing world.  The annual global cost of care and the consequences of TBI to the economy is estimated to be $US 400 billion.

These startling figures come from a consensus statement on TBI published in The Lancet Neurology on 6 November 2017.
