The Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI) promotes policies and practices that improve privately delivered health care for the poor in low- and middle-income countries. Operated through a global network of partners since 2010, CHMI is managed by the Results for Development Institute.
What we do:
INFORM: We provide comprehensive, up-to-date information about innovative programs and policies. Our programs database provides details on more than 1000 innovative health enterprises, nonprofits, and policies. Our Reported Results initiative aggregates these programs' results in areas such as quality, cost, and sustainability.
ANALYZE: We identify promising practices that can be scaled-up or adapted in other countries. We also commission cutting-edge research on new ways to improve the private health sector.
CONNECT: We connect people implementing, funding, and studying innovative programs to translate good practices and encourage innovative programs to scale.
