Promoting innovation in China through public-private partnerships:
GIA supported a major foundation in its development and launch of a major partnership with a critical government agency in China. The purpose of the partnership is to promote innovation in China that is focused on providing the world’s poorest populations with access to vaccines, medicines, and diagnostics, as well as access to tools and technologies to improve their agricultural productivity. In this role, GIA contributed to the shaping of the partnership vision, governance structure, terms of reference and programmatic design. Since the partnership launch, GIA has supported enhancements to the effectiveness of the partnership’s project-delivery system, facilitated donor-grantee engagement and ensured that activities stemming from the partnership align with the parties’ overall strategic direction.
