From Efficacy to Effectiveness at Scale: Lessons Learned from Millions Saved

This is a non-CGD event and will take place in London.


Amanda Glassman, Vice President for Programs and Director of Global Health Policy, Center for Global Development

Rachel Silverman, Senior Policy Analyst, Center for Global Development

Abraham Aseffa, Scientific Director of the Armauer Hansen Research Institute (AHRI) in Ethiopia, World Health Organization

Andrew Mirelman, Research Fellow, Centre for Health Economics, University of York

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.
