The World Health Organisation (WHO) has published their 2014 Compendium of innovative health technologies for low-resource settings.The objective of the compendium is to provide a neutral platform for technologies which are likely to be suitable for use in less resourced settings. It presents a snapshot of several health technologies which might have the potential to improve health outcomes and the quality of life, or to offer a solution to an unmet medical/health technology need.
This edition of the compendium features 127 technologies from 36 countries. The technologies span a wide range of topics including assistive devices, basic equipment for health facilities, devices for infectious diseases and for infection prevention, healthcare management, medical imaging, laboratory, monitoring, non-communicable diseases, reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health, respiratory support, and surgery.
