Having the evidence that global health interventions actually work and work cost-effectively gives policymakers and donors a guide to wise investments in global health. Global health success will come more quickly and efficiently when the guess work about what to fix, how to fix it and the cost to fix it is replaced by sound evidence and strong accountability. Successful new cost-efficient interventions have come from applying evidence-based science.
Dr. Thomas F. Frieden, Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will speak on the power of evidence-based interventions to help achieve Global Health Initiative goals and map out steps so countries can build systems and gain abilities to sustain advances for the long-term.
