Cover of Millions Saved: New Cases of Proven Success in Global Health

Millions Saved

Three editions, over thirty case studies of successful global health interventions.

Millions Saved is a collection of success stories in global health—remarkable cases in which large-scale efforts to improve health in low- and middle-income countries have succeeded. The 2016 edition of the book, Millions Saved: New Cases of Proven Success in Global Health by Amanda Glassman and Miriam Temin with the Millions Saved Team and Advisory Group, follows on two previous editions, published in 2004 and 2007. In the three editions, CGD authors showcase more than 30 rigorously evaluated case studies of successful interventions, upending conventional pessimism about public health challenges in developing countries and drawing broad lessons about what works in global health. With a foreword by Bill Gates, Millions Saved is a key resource for health policy decision makers, implementers and students worldwide.
