The Association of Academic Surgeons (AAS) and the Society of University Surgeons (SUS) are pleased to announce the launch of the Third Volume of the Disease Control Priorities (DCP3), the premier text on global health, at the Academic Surgical Congress (ASC) in February 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada. This 90 minute session, on February 5th , will increase the awareness of the burden of surgical conditions, essential surgical interventions, surgical platforms and policies, and the economics of surgery on a global scale.
The DCP3 addresses the burden of surgical conditions, essential surgical interventions, surgical platforms and policies, and the economics of surgery. Building on its predecessors, DCP1 (1993) and DCP2 (2006) published for the World Bank by Oxford University Press, the third edition will provide the most up to date evidence on intervention efficacy and program effectiveness for the leading causes of global disease burden.
The upcoming session at the ASC will be given by recognized experts in global health and surgery and will summarize and synthesize evidence of the effectiveness of global health interventions and provide comparative economic evaluation of policies to implement those interventions including the following: platforms of delivery and trauma care, quality and safety, economics in essential surgery provision, and the role of research in global surgery.
