Developing and monitoring private sector markets for malaria case management in Africa and south East Asia

This seminar will explore an approach to market landscaping to identify areas of market dysfunction; the process of developing market based interventions and monitoring the impact of these on availability price and market share of ACTs and RDTs and the quality of case management provider behaviour.
