Global health is inextricably linked to the health of the marketplace that delivers lifesaving products to low-income populations. A well-functioning health care market requires manufacturers to produce high-quality products, distributors to deliver the necessary quantities, providers to administer them correctly, and patients to be educated and active participants in their own health care. However, markets sometimes fall short.

The USAID Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact (CII) recently launched Healthy Markets for Global Health: A Market Shaping Primer, a report that examines how market shaping can increase access to critical health commodities by reducing transaction costs, increasing market information, and balancing supplier and buyer risks.

We hope you are able to join us on December 17th for a discussion of the Market Shaping Primer and how market shaping experiences across the HIV, malaria, and other health sectors can inform future opportunities.

Registration begins at 4:00 p.m. and light refreshments will be available.
