Over the past 15 years, people in low- and middle-income countries have experienced a health revolution - one that has created new opportunities and brought new challenges. It is a revolution that keeps mothers and babies alive, helps children grow, and enables adults to thrive.
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 to celebrate the launch of Millions Saved. Following a keynote address by Lord Ara Darzi, Amanda Glassman will share highlights from the book, including what has worked in global health and how we can ensure programs are even more successful in the future.
