    Power, Politics, Resilience: Health Reforms in El Salvador and Guatemala – Webinar

    There is growing recognition that policy reform for resilient health systems and universal health coverage requires more than sound technical solutions. The policy process is equally important in determining the success of any health reform initiative.

    In this webinar, we present a comparative policy analysis exploring the post-conflict health reforms of Guatemala and El Salvador, analyzing the evolution of each country’s health system from the end of civil war in the 1990’s to the present. Both countries sought to expand primary healthcare coverage among the poor, but marked differences in the processes that shaped each country’s landmark health reforms set them on divergent paths—both in the nature and success of the reforms.

    Ultimately, these contrasting experiences present useful lessons for policymakers in a variety of contexts, highlighting the importance of leadership, good governance, and political will in the stewardship of national health reform processes.

    WEBINAR 1: Consumer Awareness, Aspiration, Trust and Compliance in Marketing Nutrition Products

    Nutritious products have been notoriously hard to sell commercially to low-income people. But the sector is making progress, with new customer insights and new models emerging. The importance of demand creation, targeted, effective marketing and innovative distribution mechanisms is particularly critical for such models to scale their impact. This series will cover key aspects in marketing and distribution of nutritious products to base of the pyramid markets. The discussion will focus mostly on marketing nutritious products targeting infant and young children, though most of the lessons learnt apply to other nutritious foods (or even more widely to other beneficial consumer goods). It will share practical insight gathered from extensive research of models in this space by Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition and consulting firm Hystra.

    WEBINAR: Rural Youth Financial Inclusion – A Bridge too Far?

    Making Cents and RTI International are pleased to announce an in-person and webinar event on January 11, 2017 that will bring together financial inclusion and youth experts to discuss the key issues related to scaling rural and youth-inclusive financial services.  The panel will highlight digital and practical innovations that have the potential to financially include rural populations and especially youth, but also the challenges of applying them to this hard-to-reach group. Panelists will draw from discussions at the recent USAID-sponsored Financial Inclusion Forum, results from a 6-part rural youth learning series developed by Making Cents and IFAD, promising practices from USAID’s K-YES project in Kenya, and other initiatives focusing on rural youth financial service provision.  Join us for a discussion about how these trends are bringing rural youth financial inclusion into sight, but perhaps still an innovation away

    How Can We Scale Distribution and Sales Networks That Create Opportunities at the BoP?

    Expanding access to goods and services for the billions of people at the base of the pyramid (BoP) is not simply a growth opportunity – but a business necessity. However, reaching low-income markets often requires navigating fragmented – or in many cases, nonexistent – distribution and sales networks.

    In recognition of this complexity and the challenges facing micro-enterprises in downstream value chains, a growing number of large companies are employing inclusive distribution network models that seek to empower low-income entrepreneurs and strengthen enterprises while helping companies increase sales and reach new markets. For the handful of these networks that have successfully reached scale, there are many more that have remained siloed CSR initiatives, morphed into non-profit entities, or simply faded away.
