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.

    Global Burden of Disease and Risk Factors
    (Washington, DC: World Bank and Oxford University Press, 2006) Lopez, Alan D. ; Mathers, Colin D. ; Ezzati, Majid ; Jamison, Dean T. ; Murray, Christopher J. L.
    This volume is a single up-to-date source on the entire global epidemiology of diseases, injuries and risk factors with a comprehensive statement of methods and a complete presentation of results. It includes refined methods to assess data, ensure epidemiological consistency, and summarize the disease burden. Global Burden of Disease and Risk Factors examines the comparative importance of diseases, injuries, and risk factors; it incorporates a range of new data sources to develop consistent estimates of incidence, prevalence, severity and duration, and mortality for 136 major diseases and injuries. Drawing from more than 8,500 data sources that include epidemiological studies, disease registers, and notifications systems, this book incorporates information from more than 10,000 datasets relating to population health and mortality, representing one of the largest syntheses of global information on population health to date.
