WDI’s Healthcare sector team provides consulting services to a wide variety of health-focused organizations with current or potential operations in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Our clients are both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, including national and multinational donors. We advise our clients on projects ranging from strategic recommendations to detailed operational guidance. Many of these collaborations have focused on specific challenges along the healthcare value chain, such as healthcare delivery, procurement and supply chain, within LMICs. Regardless of the project, we apply the tools of commercial success to the business challenges our clients face, harness the expertise of University of Michigan researchers and scholars, and offer our own experience and relationships within these markets, to serve our clients.
Our healthcare team is lead by Pascale R. Leroueil. Her research is focused on applying business practices to sustainably address human health needs in emerging markets. She has worked with both public and private health systems to increase their efficiency of care. She also holds an adjunct appointment at the University of Michigan’s Medical School. Before joining WDI she worked in vaccine development at the University of Michigan’s Medical School. Leroueil earned her PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Michigan, and her MBA from U-M’s Ross School of Business.
Our engagement model involves WDI staff, research fellows, faculty from the University of Michigan and other leading business schools, and/or teams of U-M graduate students—working with our clients to develop solutions.
