Reconfiguring Global Health Innovation presents the findings of multi-year research, contrasting experiences of different latecomer countries in building health innovation systems to cater to local needs. It analyses the emerging industrial structures in health innovation as more and more latecomer countries are foraying into what is a highly difficult and technologically intensive sector, with the aim of finding ways and means to balance these promising developments with public health needs worldwide.

The bookpresents empirical findings from six countries across Asia and Africa on health innovation, namely, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Kenya, Tanzania and Nigeria. The book concludes that the growth of knowledge and the accumulation of capabilities influence the ability of a country to generate wealth.

"This book contains the most comprehensive study conducted so far on health innovation in developing countries. The author shows again her capacity to undertake empirical research with a solid theoretical background. This book is outstanding not only because of its academic value. The evidence presented and its rigorous analysis provides essential elements for policy makers in developing countries, and more broadly, for those seeking global solutions to the diseases that disproportionately affect the poor."

Carlos Correa, Director Centre for Law and Economics, University of Buenos Aires

"If you can read just one book on health, innovation and development, read this book. It is grounded on an enviable theoretical foundation and presents a set of new, fascinating evidence and case studies from latecomer countries. I recommend this book most highly."

Banji Oyeyinka, Director, UNHABITAT and Professorial Fellow, United Nations University-MERIT

"A most persuasive book that proposes a rethink on health issues and access to medicines in the context of development. The author builds a compelling case, based on evidence from several case studies, on how the health needs of the poorest can be met best."

Pedro Roffe, Senior Fellow, International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development, Geneva
