This event, hosted at the Center for Global Development, was held in partnership with PSI, PATH, and Devex and marked the launch of the Spring edition of PSI’s Impact Magazine, “The Best Buys Issue: Where to Invest in Global Health in 2014.” This event was also supported by a grant from Merck, through its Merck for Mothers Program.
Experts from implementing agencies, governments, research institutions, and the private sector met to discuss and debate what makes a “best buy” in global health. It’s a moral imperative that money spent on global health be used as effectively as possible to prevent and treat diseases and save lives. But sound investments in global health are defined in many ways: a cost-effective commodity or technology, a well-trained health workforce, or an evidence-informed policy.
