Luminco is committed to maximizing the value and impact of our clients’ products and services with excellence through innovative and flexible solutions.

Our Drive:

  • Public health goods are largely publically financed with suboptimal execution of policies and plans.
  • Inadequate social sector planning and prioritization.
  • Limited availability of financing for innovations.
  • A complex and fluid political economy.
