Abstract

Availability of health technology is inversely related to health need. Although health-care systems in highincome countries make extensive use of technology, people in the world's poorest countries often lack the most fundamental drugs and devices. A concerted global eff ort to encourage the development and use of health technologies that can benefi t the poorest people in the world is needed.
