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).

Disease Control Priorities, Third Edition: Volume 8. Child and Adolescent Health and Development(Washington, DC: World Bank, 2017-11) Bundy, Donald A. P. ; de Silva, Nilanthi ; 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 in Developing Countries, Second Edition(Washington, DC: World Bank and Oxford University Press, 2006) Jamison, Dean T. ; Breman, Joel G. ; Measham, Anthony R. ; Alleyne, George ; Claeson, Mariam ; Evans, David B. ; Jha, Prabhat ; Mills, Ann ; Musgrove, PhilipThe purpose of this book is to provide information about what works -- specifically, the cost-effectiveness of health interventions in a variety of settings. Such information should influence the redesign of programs and the reallocation of resources, thereby helping to achieve the ultimate goal of reducing morbidity and mortality. As was the case with the first edition, this second edition of Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries will serve an array of audiences. This second edition of Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries (DCP2) seeks to update and improve guidance on the what-to-do questions in DCP1 and to address the institutional, organizational, financial, and research capacities essential for health systems to deliver the right interventions. DCP2 is the principal product of the Disease Control Priorities Project, an alliance of organizations designed to review, generate, and disseminate information on how to improve population health in developing countries. In addition to DCP2, the project produced numerous background papers, an extensive range of interactive consultations held around the world, and several additional major publications.
