Global HealthShare is a
completely project-based program that identifies innovative, market-driven solutions
to improve health and generate economic growth in the developing world.
We have recruited a consortium [link] of over 40 individuals and 30 institutions who
believe in power of sharing – the power of sharing knowledge, technology,
resources, intellectual property, and infrastructure – to develop and deliver
low-cost health products and services to those that need them the most. Our technologies are created by rethinking
cost structures and reverse-innovating technology to fit the unique needs of
rural communities. And because we believe in empowering the countries we work
in by creating local expertise, we train dynamic, local entrepreneurs with the
passion and capacity to sustain these humanitarian efforts. The following
Projects describe just how we are addressing some of the world's most
challenging global disparities.
