The Launch and Scale Speedometer aims to systematically analyze the factors that support or hinder the introduction and scaling of interventions, including but not limited to drugs, diagnostics, and devices, to address critical global health challenges.
The primary goals of this project are to:
- obtain high-quality data on launch and scale-up trends of health interventions globally;
- generate and share valuable insights to improve launch and scale pathways; and,
- increase collaboration and accountability across the health sector for achieving efficiency and effectiveness for launch and scale so that interventions reach the people who need them more quickly and efficiently.
In addition to the quantitative and qualitative research on specific health interventions, Speedometer research will also focus on the introduction and scale-up trends of interventions in India an Ethiopia.
The Launch and Scale Speedometer is led by the Duke Global Health Innovation Center, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
the global health field radically underestimates what it takes to scale an intervention.
