A number of resources have recently come out that deal with intersectoral approaches to global health. Disease Control Priorities, third edition (DCP3) is a nine-volume resource “that provides up-to-date evidence on priorities that countries should consider in order to deliver Universal Health Coverage.” DCP3 recently published Volume 9 of its study, which is a summary of its major findings, plus important chapters on achieving universal health coverage and addressing intersectoral policy approaches to global health. (http://dcp-3.org/disease-control-priorities).
In November 2017, The Lancet published a companion piece to this volume: “Universal health coverage and intersectoral action for health: key messages from Disease Control Priorities, 3rd edition” (http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(17)32906-9/fulltext?dgcid=twitter_social_lancet).
