Dr Dinar Kale, Senior Lecturer in International Development and Innovation, examines the problem of inadequate medical equipment, which is donated to African health centres, and is often unused. The issue is referred to as ‘a mismatch' between supply and demand by the World Health Organisation.
Dr Kale’s research is focused on India, which, as the biggest supplier of generic drugs to developing countries, should be capable of producing the type of medical devices the Global South requires, but which has been so far constraint by red tape.
