WHO: Health tech lacking

Health Watch

The Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has highlighted the need for innovative health technologies that can help countries improve health outcomes by providing shortcuts to solutions despite lack of infrastructure and resources.
However, many of the new technologies that have come to market are unaffordable or unsuitable for low- and middle-income countries.
To ensure that all countries benefit from health innovation, the World Health Organisation compiled a compendium of 24 new technologies that can be used in low-resource settings.
