What is Disease control priorities Project?
The Disease Control Priorities Project (DCPP) is an ongoing effort to assess disease control priorities and produce evidence-based analysis and resource materials to inform health policymaking in developing countries. The project aims to promote and support the use of economic evaluation for priority setting at both global and national levels.
The project is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and managed by the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health (UW-DGH) and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). DCPP has produced three volumes providing technical resources that can assist developing countries in improving their health systems. The Disease Control Priority 3 (DCP3) is the latest edition, building on its predecessors, DCP1 (1993) and DCP2 (2006).
What is the benefit of DCP project?
By providing an understanding of Disease Control Priority issues and information on effective interventions for the range of diseases, the previous volume of DCP 1 and 2 significantly contribute to global initiatives to improve the health of all people. The 3rd edition of the DCP will provide the most up to date evidence on intervention efficacy and program effectiveness for the leading causes of global disease burden. It will go 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 (LMICs). In addition, DCP3 highlights the use of extended cost-effectiveness analysis (ECEA) to incorporate equity issues and medical impoverishment into cost-effectiveness.
