The Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries Project
Location(s): Egypt; Nigeria
The Disease Control Priorities Project (DCPP) is an ongoing project that aims to determine priorities for disease control across the world, particularly in low-income countries. The project is most well known for the Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries Report (2nd Edition) (often abbreviated as DCP2), a 1400-page report published by more than 350 specialists around the world with the goal of providing policy recommendations to reduce global disease burdens. The report is in English, but translations for some of the chapters to Arabic, Chinese, French, and Spanish are available. The report has been released under a Creative Commons attribution license (CC-BY). and a copy of the DCP2 report can be downloaded from the World Bank's Open Knowledge Repository.
This project worked to assess the cost-effectiveness of a non-pneumatic anti-shock garment (NASG) for obstetric hemorrhage in tertiary hospitals in Egypt and Nigeria.
