Developing and Disseminating New Knowledge Around Market Dynamics for Global Health [Market Dynamics Strategy Investment]October 2013 - February 2016
Well-functioning and healthy global markets for pharmaceuticals, vaccines, preventative technologies, and many other health products are key for achieving sustainable outcomes in global health. WDI helped to further the evidence base needed to move the global health community towards systematic approaches to designing and selecting market interventions. Through this work, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, WDI facilitated a common understanding of the mechanisms through which these market interventions operate. It also ensured that systematic knowledge about the successes and failures of market interventions flows from one product market to another. The project focused on the market for malaria, family planning, and other global health products.
