The Global Health Delivery Project and Harvard Business Publishing released 21 teaching case studies examining the principles of healthcare delivery in resource-poor settings. The multidisciplinary body of work spans 13 countries and addresses the complexity of delivering life-saving health care technologies and care. These 21 teaching case studies are available to global health educators, students and practitioners at no cost through Harvard Business Publishing.

Four years ago, Harvard University Professors Farmer and Michael Porter, together with current President of Dartmouth College Jim Kim, M.D., launched this effort with the goal of systematizing the study of global health delivery and rapidly disseminating knowledge to implementers. The cases document the actual operations of healthcare delivery programs in resource-constrained settings, and include supplemental materials for instructors to help stimulate and guide discussions.

All 21 case studies are being released by the Global Health Delivery Project, a collaboration among Harvard Medical School, Harvard Business School, and Brigham and Women's Hospital. This material is available to health care practitioners and implementers through Harvard Business Publishing, and a website where global health implementers connect and exchange lessons learned.
