On March 30, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted a panel of experts to discuss what conditions lead to good health governance and how those conditions affect a country’s ability to use private investments in health R&D. At the event, authors Darrell West and John Villasenor released their new paper, “Health governance capacity: Enhancing private sector investment in global health,” which examines 18 countries throughout Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. How compatible is each country’s health governance strategy with effective use of private investment in R&D?
