Launch New Initiative to Unite Efforts Across Innovation, Access and Delivery of Health Technologies for Unmet Health Needs
Recognizing the urgency of developing new lifesaving treatments for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), malaria and tuberculosis and getting them to people in need, the Government of Japan, the UNDP-led Access and Delivery Partnership (ADP) and the GHIT Fund launched Uniting Efforts for Health, a platform to improve the innovation, access and delivery of medicines, vaccines, diagnostics and other health technologies for unmet health needs in low and middle income countries (LMICs).
This week, the platform held its first dialogue, “Uniting Efforts for Innovation, Access and Delivery: A Global Dialogue” in Bangkok, Thailand. The event brought together a global network of more than 100 R&D funders, product development partners and innovators, as well as organizations and platforms focused on the access and delivery of health technologies for unmet health needs in LMICs. The dialogue provided an opportunity to share experiences and common challenges, identify best practices and explore opportunities for future collaboration.
