Millions Saved

Millions Saved is a collection of success stories in global health—remarkable cases in which large-scale efforts to improve health in developing countries have succeeded.

For the 2016 edition of the book “Millions Saved: New Cases of Proven Success in Global Health” by Amanda Glassman and Miriam Temin with the Millions Saved Team and Advisory Group, we were tasked to create a custom website accompanying the book.

Millions Saved 1

The Millions Saved website is centered around 10 main case studies, as well as a number of smaller cases. In order to bring these stories to life we focused on a combination of text, images, videos, custom illustrations, shareable quotes, as well as bigger data visualisations and maps.

Each case study is structured into sections detailing the program rollout, its impact, the cost, as well as the reasons for success and the broader implications.

Text is accompanied by a number of smaller illustrations aimed at explaining the key points. At the center of each case study is a bigger visualisation focused on showing the impact of the program.
