Case Studies in Global Health: Millions Saved consists of 20 case studies, which illustrate 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 the scale up of health technologies, the 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 the factors that contributed to each of the successes. Discussion questions help to bring out the main points and provide a point of departure for independent student research. Useful as a stand-alone text or as a complement to Essentials of Global Health, this book provides readers with a clear and inspiring picture of how global public health efforts have made a difference in the lives of people around the world.
