E-drug: Seeking your input: Prizes for Global Health Technologies
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I would like to invite your feedback on the *consultation draft of R4D’s Center 
for Global Health R&D Policy Assessment report “Prizes for Global Health 
Technologies”.

The paper evaluates the potential of incentive prizes- large cash rewards for 
specified products  or product development milestones- to speed the development 
of needed drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics for the developing world. It uses a 
case study of recent prize proposals for improved TB diagnostics to understand 
how prizes should be structured and in what circumstances they can be most 
effective.

Please visit Center for Global Health R&D Policy Assessment and to review the 
draft and add your comments.

If you prefer, you may also send comments directly to the report’s authors, 
Paul Wilson (pw2101@columbia.edu) and  Amrita Palriwala 
(apalriwala@resultsfordevelopment.org).

This draft of our “Prizes for Global Health Technologies” is the first in a 
series of  assessments to evaluate policy proposals to accelerate global health 
R&D.  Additional draft assessments will be posted in the upcoming weeks for 
public comment, including pooled funding agreements and joint intellectual 
property management mechanisms.

Many thanks for your views on the report. They are an invaluable contribution 
to our assessment process.

Best regards,
