Unpacking the role of industry associations in diffusion and governance of health innovations in developing countries

This project aims to get inside innovation and politics, looking at whether and in what ways biopharmaceutical associations in developing countries promote technological capabilities and effective governance of health innovation. Social scientific research has a gap in understanding this role in developing countries. The biopharmaceutical associations’ activities are a persistent blind spot. Focusing on India and South Africa, this project will aim to produce an analysis of the role of biopharmaceutical associations in knowledge diffusion and governance. It will also make a detailed investigation of the practical impact of this role on health delivery in developing countries and compare the distinct innovation and governance capabilities of industry associations in emerging biopharmaceutical powers.
