Beyond Global Health Impact Labeling, Licensing, and Investment: Advancing Public Health

(p.185) Conclusion
Global Health Impact

Finally, the book concludes that even if creating a Global Health Impact label proves impossible, or undesirable, data on medicines’ health consequences are incredibly valuable. Researchers can use such data to look at the determinants and consequences of health impact, and international organizations and country-level ministries of health can use them to evaluate performance, set targets, and guide the distribution of health resources to countries. In short, better understanding the effect of key medicines on the global burden of disease will help policymakers better treat and prevent infectious diseases. Although data alone will not solve any of the health problems people face, the Global Health Impact index can help many people secure essential medicines that save millions of lives every year
