Multimorbidity and its associated risk factors among adults in northern Sudan: a community-based cross-sectional study

CONCLUSIONS: The high prevalence of multimorbidity revealed in this study uncovers a major public health problem among Sudanese adults. Our results show that increasing age and female sex are associated with multimorbidity. Additional extensive studies are necessary to evaluate the magnitude of multimorbidity for improved future planning and establishing effective health systems.PMID:38281058 | PMC:PMC10822146 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-024-00513-7
