Today, at the Financing for Development Conference, the PATH-led Innovation Countdown 2030 initiative (IC2030) launched its inaugural report, Reimagining Global Health, featuring 30 innovations that could transform global health.

2015 marks a HUGE moment in global health as world leaders come together around new Global Goals that will determine the international development agenda and health investments over the next 15 years. Innovative technologies and approaches that make health care more affordable, more effective, and easier to access are key to reaching the new health goals by 2030.


Reimagining Global Health is the result of a yearlong process to identify, evaluate, and showcase some of those high-potential health technologies and ideas, with the goal of catalyzing investment and support. PATH asked over 5000 experts, in nearly 50 countries for impactful global health ideas and technologies. Out of more than 500 considered,  thirty innovations, spanning across many health areas, rose to the top with remarkable potential to save lives faster.

The 30 life-saving innovation discussed in the report are divided into the following four health areas:

1. Maternal, newborn and child health, such as innovation #10:


2. Infectious diseases, such as innovation #14:


3. Reproductive health, such as innovation #24


4. Noncommunicable diseases, such as innovation #29


Download the entire report here to read about the catalytic potential these innovations have for diabetes, cancer, HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, water and sanitation, family planning and reproductive health, maternal and child health.
