World Bank Global Program Review (GPR) is published

GPR report finds that MMV is 'an effective PD-PPP'

15 Aug 2008

The World Bank carried out a review of MMV in 2007, and the report is now available.

This Global Program Review (GPR) assesses the quality and independence of the 2005 evaluation of MMV; provides a second opinion on the effectiveness of MMV’s work; assesses the performance of the Bank as a partner of MMV; and draws lessons for the future of MMV.

It covers the period from the beginning of MMV to the present, including key developments during the last two years since the external evaluation was completed in May 2005. MMV was chosen for a GPR because it provides lessons for the design and operation of other global programs - in particular, for public-private partnerships for health research, and for international support of health research more generally.
