"I'm inspired when I see the growing number and quality of health market innovations now emerging in the developing world," Gina Lagomarsino, a principal and managing director at Results for Development Institute (R4D), writes in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's "Impatient Optimists" blog. "Since 2010, the Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI) has been identifying, analyzing, and promoting innovations that have potential to improve not only maternal and child health, but many other types of care for low-income people," she notes, adding, "In our second annual edition of Highlights [.pdf], released this week, we describe 80 innovative programs launched in the last 12 months around the world" (12/10).
