Call for innovative technologies that address global health concerns


One of the goals of the WHO Department of Essential Health Technologies is to help make available the benefits of core health technologies by developing a framework for health technology programmes and by challenging the scientific and business community to identify and develop innovative technologies to address global health concerns.

The call for innovative technologies aims at identifying and evaluating innovative medical devices, either existing or under development, which address global health concerns and which are likely to be accessible, appropriate and affordable for use in low- and middle-income countries.
