Sitting in the Global Symposium marketplace is a good way of finding more about other projects and the people that make them tick. We were lucky to have the Center for Health Market Innovations as our neighbour. Rose, their Program Officer, has been kind enough to link to our blog. You should check them out, this is what they say about their blog:

The Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI) blog features news about promising new programs, innovative collaborations, relevant resource articles, and editorial pieces authored by members of the CHMI community. These editorial pieces are intended to further conversations about health market trends, national health policies, and improving health care for the poor. We encourage you to participate in this dialogue in the comments section or suggesting a post to rreis at resultsfordevelopment.org.

Understanding and Intervening in Informal Markets in Health

David Peters chairing the sessionOver the last few years we’ve done a lot of research to explore interventions that might make health markets work better for poor people. This work is premised on the understanding that markets for health-related goods and services are widespread and in many developing countries poor people seek some proportion of their health care in these markets.

Today’s session at the Global Symposium was structured around a series of 5 minute “lightening” presentations which gave an overview of the evidence and provided feedback on research from Bangladesh, Nigeria, Uganda and India.
