Promoting tools for better health globally
The Global Health Technologies Coalition (GHTC) advocates for policies and funding that will advance research and development (R&D) into tools to improve health in developing countries.
Existing tools have helped us make tremendous progress in combating global diseases, but they are not enough to stop the spread of life-threatening illnesses. New technologies to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease are critically needed to address existing and emerging global health threats.
New market-based incentives can encourage investment by private industry in global health technology R&D.
Robust and strategic financing by the US government combined with sustained coordination by federal agencies is necessary to advance global health R&D.
Streamlined regulatory processes and pathways can help accelerate licensing of safe and effective global health technologies, ensuring that they reach those who need them faster.
