Expert partners

Expert partners manage collaborative knowledge-sharing communities in which they seek to identify, analyze, and connect high-potential business models or priority health focus areas. Other partners collaborate with CHMI to develop practical, standardized performance indicators. 

Many expert partners use this knowledge to oversee data accuracy for specific topics on the Center for Health Market Innovations. This includes updating contact information, key program components, Reported Results, and supporting documents if available. These organizations "curate" relevant topics of the data set, ensuring that profiles within certain cross sections are current and of high quality.

Stop TB Partnership


The Stop TB Partnership is leading the way to a world without tuberculosis (TB), a disease that is curable but still kills three people every minute. Founded in 2001, the Partnership's mission is to serve every person who is vulnerable to TB and ensure that high-quality treatment is available to all who need it.

Together our nearly 1100 partners are a collective force that is transforming the fight against TB in more than 100 countries. They include international and technical organizations, government programmes, research and funding agencies, foundations, NGOs, civil society and community groups and the private sector.

We operate through a secretariat hosted by the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland and seven working groups whose role is to accelerate progress on access to TB diagnosis and treatment; research and development for new TB diagnostics, drugs and vaccines; and tackling drug resistant- and HIV-associated TB. The secretariat is governed by a coordinating board that sets strategic direction for the global fight against TB.


The Partnership is recognized as a unique international body with the power to align actors all over the world in the fight against TB. The participation of a wide range of constituencies gives us credibility and the broad range of medical, social and financial expertises needed to defeat TB.


Our vision is a TB-free world. Our children will see TB eliminated in their lifetime.

  • To ensure that every TB patient has access to effective diagnosis, treatment and cure.
  • To stop transmission of TB.
  • To reduce the inequitable social and economic toll of TB.
  • To develop and implement new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic tools and strategies to stop TB.
  • By 2015: the global burden of TB disease (deaths and prevalence) will be reduced by 50% relative to 1990 levels.
  • By 2050: The global incidence of TB disease will be less than 1 per million population. (Elimination of TB as a global public health problem.)

UCSF Global Health Group's Private Sector Healthcare Initiative (PSHi)

Formerly known as the Health Systems Initiative (HSI), the Private Sector Healthcare Initiative (PSHi) works to advance the understanding of private sector healthcare provision in developing countries. PSHi’s goals are to improve the evidence base on the private health sector in developing countries, advance the global understanding of the significance of private sector healthcare provision in low- and middle-income countries, and ultimately, enable governments to more effectively interact with the private sector in order to achieve public health goals. PSHi pursues these goals through research, training and consensus-building around a broad range of private sector issues. A leader in work on social franchising, PSHi manages and has produced a substantial list of research, publications and conferences on social franchising.
