The Center for Global Development book,Millions Saved: New Cases of Proven Success in Global Health, authored by Amanda Glassman and Miriam Temin with the Millions Saved team, chronicles a global revolution from the ground up. It showcases 18 remarkable cases in which large-scale efforts to improve health in developing countries succeeded and 4 cases in which promising interventions fell short of their health targets when scaled up. Each case demonstrates how much effort is required to fight illness and sustain good health.
Join us for a panel conversation as we discuss the book and the challenges involved in writing it. Authors, Amanda Glassman and Rachel Silverman, will offer their unique perspectives on how we can evaluate health interventions. Experts, Andrew Mirelman and Abraham Aseffa, will also share some of their experiences and discuss measuring cost-effectiveness and evaluation efforts.
