By collaborating with multinational corporations, foundations, and governmental organizations, the R4D Market Dynamics practice has identified over a billion dollars in efficiency savings, while also creating manufacturer incentives to generate sustainable and reliable access to high-quality life-saving health commodities (e.g., HIV/AIDS drugs, bed nets, nutritional supplements).
