The innovation environment is evolving—UnitaidExplore is a funding mechanism seeking new ideas from across spheres to develop innovations that can be modified, repurposed, or reimagined for the goals of global health.
Access to optimal medicines and treatments that meet the unique needs of children is vital. Currently there are critical gaps in the availability of fit-for-purpose treatments tailored for children living in LMICs and affected by the deadliest infectious diseases. Commonly those caring for children are forced to administer ill-formulated and dosed medicines. This can lead to ineffective treatment and poor health outcomes, including death. We challenge YOU to propose a solution that can be applied to essential medicines for children in LMICS that can transform and improve their care and treatment leading to lives saved.
UnitaidExplore is looking to improve child health outcomes by developing better delivery systems for children’s medicines for use in low resource settings. Delivery and formulation solutions of interest may include—but are not limited to! —micro-needles, supportive technologies such as taste-masking, enhancement of bioavailability, and others described in the Unitaid landscape Innovative Delivery Systems for Paediatrics Medicines. UnitaidExplore aims to support transformative solutions and we are open to diverse technologies; surprise us!
