Paper Examines Global Fund’s Regional Procurement Costs For Malaria-Related Commodities

A paper published in the Malaria Journal “presents an analysis of malaria-related commodity procurement data from 79 countries, as reported through the Global Fund’s price and quality reporting (PQR) system for the 2005–2012 period. … This paper concludes that global procurement costs do vary by region and have reduced overall over time. This suggests a mature market is operating when viewed from the global level, but regional variation needs further attention. Such analyses should be done more often to identify and correct market insufficiencies” (Wafula et al., 12/30).
