Sharing health technologies is key for strengthening

A growing number of health partnerships focus on technology transfer to help companies in low- and middle-income countries to manufacture medicines or vaccines through knowledge sharing and capacity building. These partnerships not only improve health by increasing access to treatments for HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria; they also increase local supplies and decrease reliance on imports; raise the competence of the local workforce; and can reverse the “brain drain” from low- and middle-income countries, by increasing local “high-tech” employment opportunities.
