What Works Working Group? (February 2003 - December 2004)

September 12, 2014

The central objective of the What Works Working Group was to document a series of programs in international health that were judged to be successful using a high standard of evidence. The working group closely examined possible international public health "success stories," assessed the quality of evidence about them, identified common factors that contributed to the successes, and documented the cases in a book, Millions Saved: Proven Successes in Global Health, which was later reissued by Jones & Bartlett as a textbook, Case Studies in Global Health: Millions Saved.
