Commissioned by KaBOOM and authored by Katherine Fulton and alumna Heather McLeod Grant of the Monitor Institute this case study looks at the challenges KaBOOM faced and lessons the organization learned while pioneering an online strategy to scale its impact This strategy involves giving away the nonprofit model online for free to empower others to act on KaBoom s behalf Resource Practitioner Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship PATH III Addressing Affordability Issues In late 2006 the PATH Safe Water Project received a 17 million grant form the global development unit of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Its purpose was to evaluate how market based approaches could help accelerate the widespread adoption and sustained use of household water treatment and safe storage HWTS products among the world s poor One key factor to consider in constructing its pilot studies was the affordability of HWTS products This case study describes PATH s efforts to use consumer financing as a mechanism for making HWTS produce and supplies more accessible to its target market Resource Academic Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship CycleBeads III Implementing Too Much Too Soon To help address the issue of unplanned pregnancy and maternal mortality in the developing world researches at the University of Georgetown s Institute for Reproductive Health IRH recognized the need for a intuitive natural contraception method that could meet the needs of families that chose not to use medical or surgical alternatives IRH developed the Standard Days Method SDM a family planning system and CycleBeads Despite some reservations related to traditional values IRH seized the opportunity to roll out sDM and CycleBeads in Mali West Africa Unfortunately the initial launch did not go well and had trouble establishing effective delivery and support for the product This case looks at how IRH adapted its approach to facilitate more effective implementation of CycleBeads across Mali Resource Academic Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship d light III Building Credibility and Trust d light design is a for profit social enterprise whose purpose is to create new freedoms for customers without access to reliable power so they can enjoy a brighter future When members of d light moved to India to set up distribution of their product the team quickly discovered would not be as easy as they hoped They discovered it would be difficult to convince consumers to invest in a d light product as the market was saturated with low quality solar based lighting products Distribution posed another challenge This mini case study evaluates the strategy d light adopted to differentiate the company and establish its products as credible and trustworthy to earn the acceptance of consumers and distributors Resource Academic Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship Phoenix II When Partner Sales Fall Short of Expectations Phoenix Medical Systems was founded to manufacture an incubator designed specifically to address the needs of low resource healthcare providers in India When leaders from a multinational medical equipment company approached Phoenix about a licensing deal its founder was enthusiastic about expanding the reach of the organization Phoenix entered into a two year contract that allowed the multinational to use its established distribution channels to sell all of the products in the Phoenix portfolio under the Phoenix brand name exclusively in the Indian market Although the partnership showed great promise unfortunately it did not turn out to be as fruitful as initially hoped This mini case study describes some of the challenges Phoenix faced with its new partner and how the company responded Resource Academic Case Topics Corporate Social Responsibility Environment REI s Solar Energy Program In 2010 REI considered adding photovaltaic solar panels to the roofs of some of its facilities for both financial and environmental considerations This case discusses the company s experience with solar power generation as well as providing representative assumptions for parameters in the financial analysis Resource Academic Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship Mulago Foundation I Rigorous but Realistic Measurement The Mulago Foundation is a private foundation focused on the prospect of creating a better life for the world s poor When it comes to making investments one of the most important aspects of the Mulago approach is the ability of the organization to have a measurable impact Mulago needed to develop an approach to the measurement of impact that was simple enough for an early state resource constrained organization to carry out This mini case study describes the five step framework that the Foundation developed Resource Academic Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship Mulago Foundation II Building More than Just a Product or Service The Mulago Foundation is a private foundation focused on the prospect of creating a better life for the world s poor Concentrated in rural settings in developing countries the foundation s work is in four areas that contribute to this overarching goal The Foundation explicitly seeks to get involved with early stage entities in these targeted areas so that it can grow with the organizations it supports However one challenge of getting involved with early stage enterprises is that they sometimes focus too narrowly on the product rather than the capacity of management and development This case study explores how Mulago Foundation evaluates prospective investments and the factors it considers before coming funds to projects and organizations Resource Academic Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship Mulago Foundation III Choosing a Legal and Capital Structure The Mulago Foundation is a private foundation focused on the prospect of creating a better life for the world s poor The Mulago team looks for investment opportunities in promising products and services that address these high priority problems In evaluating potential investments the Mulago Foundation has observed how many global health innovators grapple with the choice between establishing their organizations as nonprofit or for profit entities This case studies Mulago Foundation s experience in the global health field and raises issues that innovators should consider as they evaluate their legal and capital structure Resource Academic Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship PSI II Changing Perceptions and Behaviors Population Services International PSI was founded in 1970 as a nonprofit organization focused on improving reproductive health in developing countries using commercial marketing strategies Over the years PSI broadened its mission to address family planning child and maternal health and HIV and AIDS prevention screening and treatment PSI opened an office in Lesotho and in 2010 a donor provided PSI Lesotho with a warehouse full of female condoms FCs that the organization could use to help young women in the area protect themselves from HIV AIDS The challenge for the team was to figure out how to effectively distribute and promote the FCs since early versions of the female condom were notoriously unpopular Resource Academic Case Topics Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship Inspire Evaluating a Transition to Product Development Globally pneumonia kills more children than any other illness In developed countries pneumonia and other acute respiratory conditions are treated via mechanical ventilators In resource constrained settings however ventilators are often not available because of their high cost An approach has been used successfully although not considered standard of care is bubble continuous positive airway pressure CPAP CPAPs are low cost and effective but require oxygen tanks which are expensive to transport to rural regions in 2011 a team of Stanford students set out to design a machine that would create the pressurized air of bubble CPAP without the cost burden and safety concerns with using oxygen tanks This case explores the factors that the Inspire team members evaluated in deciding whether or not to take their prototype into development Resource Academic Case 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 next last Topic Healthcare Social Entrepreneurship PATH III
