Delivering Access: First Launch in Kenya  This week Novartis representatives travel to Kenya to officially launch Novartis Access in collaboration with the Kenyan government and other partners. The program is a first for the industry and is a novel social business model that aims to deliver affordable medicines for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in lower income countries. While the goal of the access program is to be active in 30 low- and middle- income nations in the coming years, Kenya will be one of the three countries paving the path for expansion. Learn more

Management Sciences for Health (MSH) recently was awarded a second round of funding for the Salud Mesoamerica project from a consortium that includes the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Carlos Slim Health Institute, and the Spanish Government, to address gaps in access to health services in eight countries in Latin America.

The Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) Project launched its latest Implementation Kit (I-Kit) on September 30. Focused on resource mobilization, the I-Kit was created to guide organizations seeking to broaden their funding base and move toward organizational sustainability. The kit walks readers through each step of the resource mobilization process — from strategic plan design, to drafting proposals for donors, to writing business plans for funders and investors, and conducting fundraising activities.

MSH is delighted to announce that it has received a grant from Save The Children Canada (SCC) to conduct a costing analysis of its nutrition program in Afghanistan.
