Global Health Best Buys

3/20/14

This event will convene experts from implementing agencies, governments, researcher institutions, and the private sector to discuss and debate what makes a “best buy” in global health.

The first panel explores the enabling elements that help health interventions succeed – such as a favorable regulatory environment, a functioning health system, political will, and donor support – and debates the reasons interventions have succeeded in some contexts and not others. The second panel highlights examples of specific global health interventions being deployed by donors and governments, and discusses why – or why not – they are a good investment based on considerations of innovation, health impact, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability.
