By Disease Control Priorities (DCP3)
Disease Control Priorities (DCP3), a UW Department of Global Health program, provides up-to-date evidence on priorities that countries should consider in order to deliver universal health coverage. DCP3 launched their latest findings on December 6 at a standing-room only event in London co-hosted by The Lancet. The event began with keynote addresses from Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of The Lancet, and World Health Organization Director-General, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus.
The DCP3 resource includes contributions from a vast international community of authors, editors, reviewers, and researchers who contributed time and expertise to this large-scale enterprise. In his opening remarks, Dr. Richard Horton applauded DCP3 for taking an important step in outlining critical recommendations for priority setting for countries on the path toward universal health coverage. “DCP3 gives us the latest, most powerful evidence about what priorities should be considered by countries to deliver UHC,” said Horton. “It gives options, it gives opportunities, and it gives a roadmap for countries to deliver coverage to their people.”
