As the global community impact team in Sub-Saharan Africa we have found the regular insights from Baobab on the market we operate in very informative in understanding the lay of the land.  Their in-depth analyses on new social innovations in health are a key source of potential partnerships to scale solutions that bridge gaps in the healthcare system to increase access to healthcare.
