Innovation is Crucial to Global Health
Over the past 30 years, biomedical innovation has revolutionized the health care available to patients in the developed world. In the developing world, however, millions of people still die each year because they don’t have the right tools or medicines to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease.
Infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and neglected tropical diseases disproportionately impact developing world nations.
These diseases not only destroy lives—they destroy livelihoods. The millions who are affected are often unable to work and contribute to the economic health of their countries. A loss of economic stability in endemic regions have devastating local and global repercussions.
To address this global health crisis, biopharmaceutical innovation and engagement is essential.
