The BMJ Global Health Journal has published the study Pushing the envelope through the Global Financing Facility for women, children and adolescents in 50 high-burden countries, which projects that as many as 35 million lives can be saved if the GFF partnership extends its reach to 50 countries. The study was undertaken with contributions from CEPA, the Avenir Group, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the GFF and Johns Hopkins University.

The CEPA team that worked on the project comprised Oliver Bubb-Humfryes, Tom Cochrane and Christian Von Drehle.
 
Tom CochraneCommenting on the significant study, Tom Cochrane, one of CEPA's managing consultants said, "As countries continue their health financing transitions, it is key to ensure that resources generated by economic growth are used effectively—including directing more towards targeted priority health and nutrition areas. The plans of the GFF and its partners to facilitate these evolutionary changes in resource allocation could result in millions of lives being saved."
