Market Analysis and Product Uptake in Low Income Countries

Supporting access to medicines in Africa

The issue of access to medicines is a core area of interest and expertise at TESS Development Advisors. We have worked with organisations from both the public and private sectors to explore innovative ways of understanding market dynamics and supporting uptake for essential medicines.

TESS brings a different perspective to this area, being interested in how the public and private sectors for medicines interact and complement each other. This drives much of our thinking, notably around how to measure pharmaceutical markets.

Our activities in this area have included:

  • Market analysis for new paediatric TB medicines
  • Market analysis for new malaria medicines
  • Support for demand forecasting of malaria medicines
  • Analysis of supply of essential medicines
  • Innovation in market assessment and quantification systems
  • Analysis of market developments relating to local manufacturing in Africa

For more details on any of these activities, please see the individual case studies
