This case study will analyze the public-private partnership (PPP), Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV). A PPP is a relatively new business model and due the novelty of the organizational structure and function, its impact on global health efforts needs to be assessed. In the following analysis, the structure, function, and governance of MMV will be explored along with the institutional interactions with other international health organizations. Through the assessment of MMV, the background of the organization, MDG-related activities, and opportunities for reform and strengthening of the global health efforts will be recommended. For the purpose of this case study, the global health related efforts of MMV will be analyzed, particularly in the context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with the primary focus on MDG 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases.
