Service Delivery Is Key To Successful Investment In Global Health

In the Center for Global Development’s (CGD) “Global Health Policy” blog, Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and senior fellow at CGD, and CGD Research Assistant Yuna Sakuma discuss key takeaways from an event co-hosted by CGD, PSI, PATH, Devex, and Merck on service delivery in global health. They write, “The importance of service delivery isn’t a novel concept, but so often it’s overshadowed by pressure to roll out the newest or most promising technology. Some donors are taking steps to balance this. There are some novel financing approaches that might foster more impact evaluations or qualitative research on ‘failure’. … Will global health funding start to take off in this direction — or has it already? We’re eager to watch the landscape in the coming years” (3/25).
