Helpdesk Report: Global Health Partnership Impact on Commodity Pricing and Security
This report, commissioned as part of a series evaluating Global Health Partnerships (GHPs), focuses on identifying the impact of structures embedded within GHPs on pricing and security ofcommodities that meet global health needs in developing countries. The report identifies the market structure within which the different GHPs are operating, traces the various functions performed by each GHP, unpacks what effect these functions have on the intermediary variables of supplier cost, competition and purchaser leverage, and finally, identifies what outcomes have been achieved in terms of commodity pricing and security.
