Objectives: To address ongoing pandemics and epidemics, policy makers need good data on not only the need for treatments but also on new interventions' impacts. We present a mathematical model of medicines' health consequences using disease surveillance data to inform health policy and scientific research that can be extended to address the current public health crisis.Methods: The Global Health Impact (GHI) index calculates the amount of mortality and morbidity averted by key medicines for malaria, TB, HIV/AIDS, and several NTDs using data on outcomes in the absence of treatment, treatment effectiveness, and access to needed treatment.
