Action and Investment to Defeat Malaria 2016-2030
The Roll Back Malaria Partnership (RBM) has contracted Swiss TPH and Deloitte Consulting LLP to guide the development of “Action and Investment to Defeat Malaria 2016-2030 (AIM).” The document argues for stronger collaboration between countries and sectors to accelerate malaria elimination. It complements the WHO Global Technical Strategy for Malaria and provides a framework for investment and action for all those campaigning for a malaria-free world.
Influence of Private Finance on Global Health Initiatives
A Swiss TPH research project determines the current magnitude, nature, and trends of private financing in Development Assistance for Health (DAH) and the effect of these emergent global health initiatives on global health architecture, policies, and delivery of desired outcomes. Development Assistance for Health in resource-constrained countries is at a crossroads. The situation is evolving after a decade of increasing complexity in global health architecture with the arrival of new actors, particularly from the private sector, philanthropic groups, and dominant emerging economies. Global monitoring of financial flows for DAH as part of Official Development Assistance (ODA) continues to focus only on conventional OECD sources and fails to include these pivotal new actors, their programmes, and their influence.

A New Health Insurance for Tanzanias Rural Population
Basic healthcare in Tanzania, supported by general health insurance - this is the objective of a Swiss TPH project together with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The system, which is based on smartphone technology, promises improved security of supply and will allow for more efficient health care services in local health centres. The project also forms the basis of a national Tanzanian health insurance model.
