7 - Infectious Disease, Injury, and Reproductive Health

Summary

This chapter identifies key priorities for the control of infectious disease, injury, and reproductive health problems for the 2012 Copenhagen Consensus. It draws directly upon the disease control paper (Jamison et al., 2008) from the 2008 Copenhagen Consensus 2008 and the AIDS vaccine paper for the 2011 Copenhagen Consensus RethinkHIV project (Hecht and Jamison, 2012). This chapter updates the evidence and adjusts the conclusions of the previous work in light of subsequent research and experience. For the 2012 Copenhagen Consensus NCDs are being treated in a separate paper (Jha et al., 2012, Chapter 3 in this volume) that complements this one. This chapter's conclusions emphasize investments in control of infection. That said, one of the six investment areas advanced – essential surgery – addresses both the complications of childbirth and injury, and points to the potential for substantial disease burden reduction in these domains.

All this work builds on the results of the Disease Control Priorities Project (DCPP). The DCPP engaged over 350 authors and estimated the cost-effectiveness of 315 interventions. These estimates vary a good deal in their thoroughness and in the extent to which they provide regionally-specific estimates of both cost and effectiveness. Taken as a whole, however, they represent a comprehensive canvas of disease control opportunities. We will combine this body of knowledge with the results from research and operational experience in the subsequent four years.
