Disease control priorities in developing countries, second edition
As part of its comprehensive global health examination, DCP2 asked a number of questions. DCP2's answers contribute substantially to global initiatives to improve the health of all peoples by providing a multidisciplinary understanding of these fundamental issues and challenges, as well as effective interventions for the range of communicable and noncommunicable diseases and conditions and risk factors. Combining insights from DCP2 and knowledge of their local situation, actors at many levels–from parliamentarians and health ministers to hospital administrators, health care workers, and concerned citizens–will be able to set priorities, select appropriate interventions, devise better means of delivery, improve management, and be more effective in mobilizing resources. In this manner, the benefits of technical progress in improving health can be extended and shared by all.
