Helping TB Programs Scale Through Technology

Welcome to Innovators in Health

Tuberculosis kills 1,800,000 people a year, most of them destitute, and many in their prime.

The cure was found in 1952. It is cheap and effective. Yet only half the patients receive drugs, often irregularly, leading to relapse and drug-resistant TB.

Programs that overcome myriad economic and social barriers to delivery face a significant logistical impediment to scaling: supervising a vast network of individual providers who record deliveries on paper. This requires frequent travel, and laboriously sifting through paper records that are hard to authenticate. Both productivity and outcomes suffer as a result.

Innovators In Health develops technology to electronically record, authenticate, wirelessly relay, and analyze delivery of medication with the goal of lowering costs and improving cure rates, thus helping programs scale. Learn more about us
