Item description for Making Markets for Vaccines: Ideas to Action by Owen Barder, Alice Albright, Michael Kremer & Ruth Levine...

Making a commitment in advance to buy vaccines if and when they are developed would create incentives for industry to increase investment in research and development. New commercial investment would complement funding of research and development by public and charitable bodies, accelerating the development of vital new vaccines for the developing world.

This report presents the proposal from theory to practice, by showing how a commitment can be consistent with ordinary legal and budgetary principles. By creating arrangements that devote the same scientific effort to diseases of the poor as we put into diseases of the rich, we can make a lasting contribution to the defeat of poverty.

Reviews - What do customers think about Making Markets for Vaccines: Ideas to Action?

Praise for Making Markets for Vaccines  May 24, 2005

"The innovative ideas presented in this book are intended to provide incentives to the private sector to conduct research and development to address the major killer diseases of the poor in the developing world. It offers specific and creative proposals for utilizing market mechanisms to address one of the critical challenges facing the world today. These proposals merit the support of all those concerned about these global challenges. I certainly endorse and fully support the proposals."

- Meles Zenawi, Prime Minister of Ethiopia

"This is an innovative and practical idea which would unleash the resources of the private sector to develop vaccines that would protect millions of people from terrible diseases. Making Markets for Vaccines is policy analysis at its best: realistic, evidence-based and focused on the world's most pressing challenges."

- Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

"Deadly diseases like AIDS that devastate developing countries are not only a humanitarian issue, they are a security issue for the United States. To develop vaccines against the world's most dangerous diseases, the international community will have to think more strategically and act more collaboratively than it has in the past. This book is an important contribution to that effort."

- Senator Richard G. Lugar, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee
