"This book demonstrates that smart, well-constructed investments in global health can achieve a widespread impact on the way people live." --Dr. Rajiv Shah, USAID Administrator This series of twenty case studies illustrates real-life proven, large-scale success stories in global public health. Drawing from a rich evidence base, the accessible case write-ups highlight experiences in scale-up of health technologies, strengthening of health systems, and the use of health education and policy change to achieve impressive reductions in disease and disability, even in the poorest countries. An overview chapter draws attention to factors that contributed to the successes. Discussion questions help to bring out the main points and provide a point of departure for independent student research. This volume is an updated and expanded version of the popular and influential book Millions Saved: Proven Successes in Global Health, published in 2004 by the Center for Global Development. Useful as a stand-alone text or as a complement to Essentials of Global Health, this book will give your students a clear and inspiring picture of how global public health efforts have made a difference in the lives of people around the world. Looking for more real-life evidence? Check out Cases 1, 3, 6, 7, & 13 in Essential Case Studies in Public Health, Putting Public Health into Practice.
