Management Sciences for Health (MSH), a global nonprofit organization, partners with governments, civil society, the private sector, and health care workers to build resilient and sustainable health systems. Our mission is saving lives and improving the health of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people by closing the gap between knowledge and action in public health.
MSH has published the International Medical Products Price Guide since 1986, with the most recent data update in 2015. The Guide contains a spectrum of prices from pharmaceutical suppliers, international development organizations, and government agencies. It aims to make price information more widely available in order to improve procurement of medical products of assured quality for the lowest possible price. MSH currently seeks to understand demand for the Price Guide and similar resources in the market.
The student will support an MSH team in conducting a desktop landscape assessment of the medical product pricing space, demand for the Price Guide in its current format, and opportunities for sustaining the resource moving forward.
