The Global Health Innovative Technology Fund and Unitaid collaboration to accelerate access to innovative solutions

The Global Health Innovative Technology Fund (GHIT) and Unitaid have signed a collaboration framework that aims to increase awareness of and access to innovation and expertise in key areas such as malaria, tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases.

In the context of achieving the health-related Sustainable Development Goals and universal health coverage, GHIT and Unitaid will use this new collaborative framework to coordinate actions to accelerate access to innovative solutions, focusing on products and technologies that can deliver the most impact on the ground and address the global health-related needs.

The framework will operate at a broad strategic level to support alignment between GHIT’s strength in product development and Unitaid’s expertise in promoting access to and scale-up of health innovations. It also creates a channel for continuous dialogue between the two parties as part of their goals to bring innovation to vulnerable and underserved populations as part of reaching universal health coverage.
