Summary: The article presents a systematic review and meta-analysis of surveys that estimate the prevalence of multimorbidity among adults in community settings. The study analyzed data from 126 peer-reviewed studies, including nearly 15.4 million people from 54 countries worldwide. The overall global prevalence of multimorbidity was 37.2%, with South America having the highest prevalence, followed by North America, Europe, and Asia. The study also found that females have a higher prevalence of multimorbidity than males, and that more than half of the adult population worldwide above 60 years of age had multimorbid conditions.
