On January 1, the countdown to 2030 officially began with the implementation of the new global development goals. To mark this occasion, GHTC launched a four-part video series exploring the role of global health innovation in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The series features interviews with global health thought leaders, advocates, researchers, product developers, and policymakers filmed on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

As 2016 ushers in a new era of development, strong and sustained investment in research and development (R&D) for new vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and other health technologies are key to tackling the world’s most pressing health challenges and accelerating progress toward ending poverty and achieving the global goals.
