|Local production and Technology Transfer to increase access to medical devices addressing the barriers and challenges in low and middle income countries
|Technologies dites "appropriées" aux pays en développement
|The overarching goal of this report is to bring together the views of diverse stakeholders from the fields of public health, industry, academia and other relevant sectors, to explore viable pathways to stimulate adaptive strategies to increasing access to medical devices. The report offers an overview of the current global medical device market, in which only 13% of manufacturers are located in LMICs. A landscape analysis on local production and technology transfer shows that local production potentially offers a cost-effective pathway to improving access to health care and medical devices. However, in settings where innovations are not economically viable, high costs of production may serve to hinder local innovation and development and, in turn, limit their ability to meet local health care needs.
