Innovative Distribution Models in Global Health

FSED is working on various projects to research and implement global best practice in distributing health products to low-income individuals. Solutions to global health challenges often require a combination of invention and distribution. Too often, however, a financially sustainable distribution model – the essential yet least understood component of system solutions – is missing or insufficiently understood.

Gathering insights from an existing handful of organizations experimenting with various models of health-related product distribution to the very poor, our work is aiming be the first to distil emerging global bet practice guidelines.

Access Afya, a chain of micro-clinics operating in the slums of Nairobi, is a key partner in our work.

Insights to date have been drawn from JITA through our research Bangladesh's Rural Sales Program: Towards a Scalable Rural Sales Agent Model for Distributing Socially Beneficial Goods to the Poor.
