Disease Control Priorities Fourth Edition (DCP4) builds on Disease Control Priorities Editions 1-3, published by the World Bank. Through collaboration (with local and international experts, WHO and the World Bank) in a select number of low- and lower-middle income countries, DCP4 will summarize, produce, and help translate economic evidence into better priority setting for universal health coverage (UHC) and for intersectoral and international action for health. DCP4 will be relevant for all countries committed to increasing public financing of UHC and promoting other health-improving policies, recognizing the need to set priorities on their path towards achieving the sustainable development goals.

Details descriptions of the session:

This panel will have brief presentations with an interactive session in the middle and plenary discussions with an opportunity to sign on to DCP4 collaboration at the end.
Handouts for the breakout session will be made available.
