Abstract

Accidents and injuries are known around the world as the leading cause of disability and mortality. This study aimed to investigate the epidemiology of deaths due to accidents and injuries and years of life lost due to it. The method used in this research is the documentary method analysis. The study population was all deaths recorded in the Statistics and Performance Analysis Unit of Golestan University of Medical Sciences during the years 2014–2018.  During the years 2014 to 2018, more than 4318 deaths due to accidents occurred in Golestan province, of which 76.3% were related to men and 23.7% were related to women. There were about 99,531 years of life lost due to premature death during the study period, with the proportion of men (75,737 years, 16 per 1,000) higher than women (23,794 years, 5.1 per 1,000).  Promoting knowledge and education, especially in the younger age group, interventions to solve accident-prone areas, adopting policies to reduce traffic accidents and lack of easy access to pesticides, teaching safety principles are also recommended.
