    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 3. Cancer
    (Washington, DC: World Bank, 2015-11-12) Gelband, Hellen; Jha, Prabhat; Sankaranarayanan, Rengaswamy; Horton, Susan; Gelband, Hellen; Jha, Prabhat; Sankaranarayanan, Rengaswamy; Horton, Susan; Jamison, Dean T.; Nugent, Rachel; Laxminarayan, Ramanan
    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. 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.
