Health Governance Capacity May Incentivize Greater Investment In Health Care R&D

Brookings Institution’s “Africa in Focus”: Setting the stage for greater health R&D investment in Sub-Saharan Africa
Liz Sablich, director of communications for governance studies at the Brookings Institution, discusses findings from a new report from the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings on “incentivizing private investors and pharmaceutical companies to raise their investment in health care R&D.” Sablich notes, “A first step toward incentivizing investment, the researchers argue, is assessing the health governance capacity — the ability of a nation’s government and institutions to implement health policies, provide medical services, and respond to global health crises — in the countries that seek private financing,” and highlights the health governance capacity scores of select African countries (5/8).
