Global Health

As more countries rise out of poverty, CGD’s work in this area focuses on the inequities and emerging problems that jeopardize global health progress.

As more countries rise out of poverty, CGD is focusing on the inequities and emerging problems that jeopardize global health progress: How should governments allocate scarce health budgets rationally? How can global health donors and other development partners advance global health security, pandemic preparedness, and health systems strengthening? What can be done to address health inequities in low- and middle-income countries? What are evidence-informed policies to address market failures that span from early-stage pharmaceutical research and development to supply chain efficiency and ensure health product markets work for the poor? 

CGD research helps policymakers build sustainable health systems, respond to shifting realities, and deliver value for money.
