About the Project

The Disease Control Priorities is a multi-year project funded in 2010 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. From 2010 – 2017, it was led by the University of Washington, which coordinated two key strategies to promote and support the use of economic evaluation for priority setting at both global and national levels: strengthening local capacity for evidence-based decision making and publishing the Disease Control Priorities, 3rd edition (DCP3) evidence and model packages.

In 2018, the DCP3 Country Translation project (DCP3 CTP) was initiated to respond to the need for evidence and technical support in priority setting, economic evaluation, and developing/revising and implementing UHC packages of health services in low and middle-income countries. The DCP3 Country Translation project is hosted at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). It is currently collaborating with a number of pilot countries in the area of priority setting, development and implementation of UHC Essential Packages of Health Services.
