development of needed drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics for the developing
world. It uses a case study of recent prize proposals for improved TB

proposals to accelerate global health R&D. Additional draft assessments
will be posted in the upcoming weeks for public comment, including pooled

contribution to our assessment process.
