Disease Control Priorities Network (DCPN)

Disease Control Priorities Network

In collaboration with the University of Washington, The Center for Disease Dynamics & Economic Policy, and the Public Health Foundation of India, the Disease Control Priorities Network (DCPN) aims to improve the efficacy of health resource spending in various contexts around the globe. Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the DCPN evaluates the potential costs and benefits of allocating funds to a range of health service delivery platforms (such as hospitals and clinics), research and development of new health technologies, and new health interventions.

This project seeks to produce a consistent set of cost and cost-effectiveness estimates for health interventions around the world, as well as the tools required to calculate these estimates.

One of the products of the joint DCPN effort is Choosing Health: An Entitlement for All Indians, a report that outlines not only the major health concerns in India, but also a package of affordable, cost-effective interventions that would best address those concerns.
