Building on its predecessors DCP1 (1993) and DCP2 (2006), the third edition, published by The World Bank Group, provides the most up-to-date evidence on intervention efficacy and program effectiveness for the leading causes of global disease burden. It goes beyond previous efforts by providing systematic economic evaluation of policy choices affecting the access, uptake and quality of interventions and delivery platforms for low-and middle-income countries. Complete volumes of DCP3 will be published electronically and in hard copy in 2015 and 2016. Disease Control Priorities Network (DCPN) at University of Washington’s Department of Global Health, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, promotes and supports the use of economic evaluation for priority setting at both global and national levels through policy advocacy, country engagement, and the production of Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition (DCP3).

    Prioridades para el control de enfermedades: Compendio de la 3a edición
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2018-02) Jamison, Dean T.; Nugent, Rachel; Gelband, Hellen; Horton, Susan; Jha, Prabhat; Laxminarayan, Ramanan; Mock, Charles N.
    Acerca de esta serie: Desde su concepción, la serie Prioridades para el control de enfermedades se ha enfocado en la prestación de inter- venciones de salud eficaces que puedan resultar en reducciones notables en la mortalidad y discapacidad a un costo relativamente bajo. El enfoque ha sido multidisciplinario y las recomendaciones basadas en evidencia, escalables y adaptables a múltiples escenarios. Una atención en salud mejor y más equitativa es la responsabilidad compartida de gobiernos y agencias internacionales, sectores públicos y privados, y sociedades e individuos. Todos estos actores se han involucrado en el desarrollo de la serie. Prioridades para el control de enfermedades, tercera edición (DCP3), construye sobre la base y los análisis de la primera y segunda edi- ciones (DCP1 y DCP2) para consolidar su posición de referencia para el diseño de programas y programación de recursos en los niveles global y nacional, al proveer una revisión actualizada de la eficacia de las intervenciones en salud prioritarias. Además, DCP3 presenta evaluaciones económicas sistemáticas y comparables de intervenciones, paquetes, plataformas de prestación de servicios y políticas seleccionadas que se basan en métodos econométricos de reciente desarrollo. DCP3 presenta sus hallazgos en nueve volúmenes individuales que se dirigen a audiencias específicas. Los volúmenes están estructurados alrededor de paquetes de intervenciones relacionadas conceptualmente, entre ellas las referentes a salud materna e infantil, enfermedades cardiovasculares, enfermedades infecciosas, cáncer y cirugía. Los volúmenes de DCP3 constituirán un recurso esencial para los países al momento de considerar cuál es la forma idónea de mejorar la atención en salud; igualmente lo serán para la comunidad global de políticas en salud, especialistas técnicos y estudiantes.

    Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition: Volume 6. Major Infectious Diseases
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2017-11-06) Holmes, King K.; Bertozzi, Stefano; Bloom, Barry R.; Jha, Prabhat; Holmes, King K.; Bertozzi, Stefano; Bloom, Barry R.; Jha, Prabhat
    Infectious diseases are the leading cause of death globally, particularly among children and young adults. The spread of new pathogens and the threat of antimicrobial resistance pose particular challenges in combating these diseases. Major Infectious Diseases identifies feasible, cost-effective packages of interventions and strategies across delivery platforms to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections, tuberculosis, malaria, adult febrile illness, viral hepatitis, and neglected tropical diseases. The volume emphasizes the need to effectively address emerging antimicrobial resistance, strengthen health systems, and increase access to care. The attainable goals are to reduce incidence, develop innovative approaches, and optimize existing tools in resource-constrained settings.

    Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition: Volume 9. Improving Health and Reducing Poverty
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2017-11) Jamison, Dean T.; Gelband, Hellen; Horton, Susan; Jha, Prabhat; Laxminarayan, Ramanan; Mock, Charles N.; Nugent, Rachel
    As the culminating volume in the DCP3 series, volume 9 will provide an overview of DCP3 findings and methods, a summary of messages and substantive lessons to be taken from DCP3, and a further discussion of cross-cutting and synthesizing topics across the first eight volumes. The introductory chapters (1-3) in this volume take as their starting point the elements of the Essential Packages presented in the overview chapters of each volume. First, the chapter on intersectoral policy priorities for health includes fiscal and intersectoral policies and assembles a subset of the population policies and applies strict criteria for a low-income setting in order to propose a "highest-priority" essential package. Second, the chapter on packages of care and delivery platforms for universal health coverage (UHC) includes health sector interventions, primarily clinical and public health services, and uses the same approach to propose a highest priority package of interventions and policies that meet similar criteria, provides cost estimates, and describes a pathway to UHC.

    Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition: Volume 8. Child and Adolescent Health and Development
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2017-11) Bundy, Donald A. P.; Horton, Susan; Jamison, Dean T.; Patton, George C.
    About the Series From its inception, the Disease Control Priorities series has focused attention on delivering efficacious health interventions that can result in dramatic reductions in mortality and disability at relatively modest cost. The approach has been multidisciplinary, and the recommendations have been evidence-based, scalable, and adaptable in multiple settings. Better and more equitable health care is the shared responsibility of governments and international agencies, public and private sectors, and societies and individuals, and all of these partners have been involved in the development of the series. Disease Control Priorities, third edition (DCP3) builds upon the foundation and analyses of the first and second editions of Disease Control Priorities (DCP1 and DCP2) to further inform program design and resource allocation at global and country levels by providing an up-to-date comprehensive review of the effectiveness of priority health interventions. In addition, DCP3 presents systematic and comparable economic evaluations of selected interventions, packages, delivery platforms, and policies based on newly developed economic methods. DCP3 presents its findings in nine individual volumes addressed to specific audiences. The volumes are structured around packages of conceptually related interventions, including those for maternal and child health, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, and surgery. The volumes of DCP3 will constitute an essential resource for countries as they consider how best to improve health care, as well as for the global health policy community, technical specialists, and students.

    Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition: Volume 7. Injury Prevention and Environmental Health
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2017-10-25) Mock, Charles N.; Nugent, Rachel; Kobusingye, Olive; Smith, Kirk R.; Mock, Charles N.; Nugent, Rachel; Kobusingye, Olive; Smith, Kirk R.
    The substantial burden of death and disability that results from interpersonal violence, road traffic injuries, unintentional injuries, occupational health risks, air pollution, climate change, and inadequate water and sanitation falls disproportionally on low- and middle-income countries. Injury Prevention and Environmental Health addresses the risk factors and presents updated data on the burden, as well as economic analyses of platforms and packages for delivering cost-effective and feasible interventions in these settings. The volume's contributors demonstrate that implementation of a range of prevention strategies-presented in an essential package of interventions and policies-could achieve a convergence in death and disability rates that would avert more than 7.5 million deaths a year.

    Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition: Volume 4. Mental, Neurological, and Substance Use Disorders
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2016-03-21) Patel, Vikram; Chisholm, Dan; Dua, Tarun; Laxminarayan, Ramanan; Medina-Mora, Maria Elena; Patel, Vikram; Chisholm, Dan; Dua, Tarun; Laxminarayan, Ramanan; Medina-Mora, Maria Lena
    Mental, neurological, and substance use disorders are common, highly disabling, and associated with significant premature mortality. The impact of these disorders on the social and economic well-being of individuals, families, and societies is large, growing, and underestimated. Despite this burden, these disorders have been systematically neglected, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, with pitifully small contributions to scaling up cost-effective prevention and treatment strategies. Systematically compiling the substantial existing knowledge to address this inequity is the central goal of this volume. This evidence-base can help policy makers in resource-constrained settings as they prioritize programs and interventions to address these disorders.

Better and more equitable health care is the shared responsibility of governments and international agencies, public and private sectors, and societies and individuals, and all of these partners have been involved in the development of the series. Volume 3, Cancer, presents the complex patterns of cancer incidence and death around the world and evidence on effective and cost-effective ways to control cancers. The DCP3 evaluation of cancer will indicate where cancer treatment is ineffective and wasteful, and offer alternative cancer care packages that are cost-effective and suited to low-resource settings.

    Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition : Volume 1. Essential Surgery
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2015-03-24) Debas, Haile T.; Donkor, Peter; Gawande, Atul; Jamison, Dean T.; Kruk, Margaret E.; Mock, Charles N.; Debas, Haile T.; Donkor, Peter; Gawande, Atul; Jamison, Dean T.; Kruk, Margaret E.; Mock, Charles N.
    Essential Surgery is the first volume in the Disease Control Priorities, third edition (DCP3) series. DCP3 endeavors to inform program design and resource allocation at the global and country levels by providing a comprehensive review of the effectiveness, cost, and cost-effectiveness of priority health interventions. The volume presents data on the surgical burden of disease, disability, congenital anomalies, and trauma, along with health impact and economic analyses of procedures, platforms, and packages to improve care in settings with severe budget limitations. Essential Surgery identifies 44 surgical procedures that meet the following criteria: they address substantial needs, are cost effective, and are feasible to implement in low- and middle-income countries. If made universally available, the provision of these 44 procedures would avert 1.5 million deaths a year and rank among the most cost effective of all health interventions. Existing health care delivery structures can be leveraged to provide affordable and quality care, with first-level hospitals capable of delivering the majority of procedures, while addressing substantial disparities in safety. Existing infrastructure can also expand access to surgery by implementing measures such as task sharing, which has been shown to be safe and effective while countries build workforce capacity. Nearly ten years after the second iteration of Disease Control Priorities was released, increased attention to the importance of health systems in providing access to quality care is once again reshaping the global health landscape. Low- and middle-income countries are continuing to set priorities for funding and are making decisions across an increasingly complex set of policy and intervention choices with a greater appreciation for the value of program and economic evaluations. By reviewing the large burden of surgical disorders, the cost-effectiveness of surgical procedures, and the strong public demand for surgical services, Essential Surgery makes a compelling case for improving global access to surgical care.
