When you think about innovation in global health, what comes to your mind? New mobile applications to improve delivery, processes for rapid diagnostic tests, or new point of care technology for health care? While these advances in modern medicine are important, the author of this article, Krista Donaldson, CEO of D-Rev argues that “technology-based solutions only get us so far.” She provides examples of organizations at the front lines of global health that are innovating in delivery, partnerships and financing.
I would love to get thoughts from members here on the article, and more specifically on the following questions:
Where do you think next innovation needs to happen in global health?
Are there organizations that you can think of that are applying innovative approaches to improve global health?
