Ideas to Action:

Independent research for global prosperity

Priority-Setting

Vaccinate children or fund dialysis for kidney patients? With limited healthcare budgets, many developing country governments face tough choices about what health services to offer. Yet much health spending in developing countries is not based on evidence of what is most efficient and effective. CGD research shows governments how to make better decisions for better health. And our work has already led to the creation of the International Decision Support Initiative—a global partnership helping policymakers make better-informed decisions that save money and lives.
