GHTC works to save and improve lives by encouraging the research and development of essential health technologies. We bring together more than 25 nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and aligned businesses to advance policies to accelerate the creation of new drugs, vaccines, diagnostics, and other tools that bring healthy lives within reach for all people.

Why we're needed

Health technologies have the potential to save millions of lives. New tools are needed to slow the global threat of diseases, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and neglected tropical diseases, and tackle many other pressing health needs. For diseases and conditions primarily affecting people in the world’s poorest places, there is little to no commercial market to spur R&D. Strong investment and innovative solutions are needed to catalyze the development of new technologies to bring health and opportunity within reach for all people.
