DCP3 will consist of nine separate volumes, eight of which will focus on a specific disease cluster or population, and the ninth will be an overview with main findings and conclusions about achieving health priorities. Each volume will contain approximately 15 to 20 chapters written by prominent scholars and practitioners in the field. The volume editors will serve as advisors to chapter authors and fellow editors.
Similar to the first and second editions of Disease Control Priorities, DCP3 will include an up-to-date comprehensive review of the efficacy and effectiveness of priority health interventions with the goal of influencing program design and resource allocation at global and country levels. In addition, DCP3 volumes will present systematic and comparable economic evaluation of selected interventions, delivery platforms, and policies, based on new analytical methods being developed specifically for DCPN. The comprehensive economic evaluation will incorporate evidence on intervention quality and uptake, along with non-health outcomes such as equity and financial protection.
