Balancing demand and supply in markets to deliver equitable, sustainable access to products and services that improve children’s lives
Millions of children lack access to basic solutions in health, nutrition, water and sanitation that can easily be made available, especially in poor and marginalized communities.
Worldwide, preventable birth complications, acute respiratory infections and diarrhoea are some of the leading causes of death for children under five years old. This is mostly because products and services such as vaccines, medicines, clean water and appropriate sanitation are out of reach for these children. At other times, the solutions that are available are limited or non-existent at the required quality and price point.
We can change this together by reducing market barriers and constraints for existing and future products, and by nurturing a healthy balance between demand and supply to improve access to essential products and services for every child.
