Abstract:
On 15 - 16 April 2004 the Initiative on Public-Private Partnerships for Health convened a workshop entitled Combating Diseases Associated with Poverty: Financing Product Development and the Potential Role of Public-Private Partnerships. The workshop examined the operations and financing of so-called product development public-private partnerships (PD PPPs, also referred to here for convenience, as product development partnerships or PDPs). This brief report makes suggestions on what needs attention in light of what has happened since the 2004 IPPPH convened London meeting.

Title: The Combined Approach Matrix: A priority-setting tool for health research
Themes: Tools for enhancing health equity
Authors: de Francisco, Andrés; Ghaffar, Abdul; Matlin, Stephen A.
Keywords: analysis, collection, combined approach matrix (CAM), cost-effectiveness, evidence-based, health research, inclusive, interventions, neglected areas, priority setting, systematic
Year: 2004 Pages: 70
Abstract:
A systematic, evidence-based and inclusive process is critical to identifying and setting the research priorities that will make the greatest contribution to people's health. The Combined Approach Matrix is a tool developed by the Global Forum for Health Research that enables the collection, organization and analysis of the information necessary to set research priorities based on a scientific process involving all stakeholders in health and research for health. The tool facilitates comparisons between the likely cost-effectiveness of different types of interventions. It also helps institutions at the national, regional and global levels ensure that more health research is conducted on the most important and often most neglected areas of diseases and the multi-faceted determinants of health.

Keywords: child health, mortality, progress, public health, research
Year: 2002 Pages: 30
Abstract:
Progress in public health depends on the systematic critical review and analysis of current practice with a view to doing things better in the future; this is the essence of research. The cycle of the research, action and evaluation leading on to more research, has provided the underpinning for many of the most remarkable achievements in global health exemplified by the dramatic declines in child mortality that have occurred over the past few decades.
