The global health community has set ambitious goals: whether it is about eliminating malaria, having an AIDS-free generation, maximizing vaccine coverage, or securing access to reproductive health supplies, a holistic approach is needed to solve these problems.

WDI’s Healthcare Sector works across the healthcare value chain to enable well-functioning markets, strengthen supply chain systems, and improve healthcare delivery.

We bring our knowledge, our resources, and our business acumen to the table in order to bring better health to those in need.

Partnership Models

The Healthcare Sector offers a unique and diverse skill set in working with the private sector and policy makers through both sector-directed work as well as cross-organizational collaboration.

Research Opportunities

We develop and implement new healthcare research in different global settings on an ongoing basis. Research projects range from short-term analysis to long-term partnerships.  While the scope of each project varies, our sector has the capacity to conduct comprehensive strategic assessments, build analytical and simulation models, develop research designs and survey instrumentation, coordinate data collection, and implement data analysis plans.

Policy Advising

Through active research and dialogue, we advise policymakers and implementers on creating scalable and sustainable models for healthcare supply chains. The sector’s unique organizational structure helps stimulate stakeholder discussions around new solutions to the many problems affecting global healthcare delivery.

Education and Training

The Healthcare Sector shares knowledge and best practices with practitioners, managers and thought leaders in emerging markets through cross-institutional collaboration with WDI’s Education Sector, WDI Publishing, and NextBillion. Education and training programs feature the latest research and analysis from within the sector’s areas of expertise while also incorporating local examples and case studies.

Student Opportunities

WDI is closely affiliated with the University of Michigan and works directly with both the staff and faculty within the various schools, departments and research centers across campus as well as directly with the university’s student population.  The Healthcare Sector engages with students through Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP) at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business and through WDI’s Global Impact Summer Internship Program.
