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.
