Metrics : What Counts in Global Health, Paperback / softback Book


This volume's contributors evaluate the accomplishments, limits, and consequences of using quantitative metrics in global health.

Whether analyzing maternal mortality rates, the relationships between political goals and metrics data, or the links between health outcomes and a program's fiscal support, the contributors question the ability of metrics to solve global health problems.

They capture a moment when global health scholars and practitioners must evaluate the potential effectiveness and pitfalls of different metrics-even as they remain elusive and problematic. Contributors. Vincanne Adams, Susan Erikson, Molly Hales, Pierre Minn, Adeola Oni-Orisan, Carolyn Smith-Morris, Marlee Tichenor, Lily Walkover, Claire L.
