Fever Diagnostic Technology Landscape

UNITAID, Eds.: World Health Organisation (WHO), (2018)

1st edition. Unitaid’s report describes a slate of new devices that can more efficiently identify dangerously ill children so that they can be treated immediately. These tools make it easier to recognize danger signs, and support integrated approaches to reducing childhood deaths from the three greatest childhood killers: malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea. The report also highlights tests that can determine whether or not a child has an illness that can be treated with antibiotics.

Technologies for global health

Peter Howitt, Ara Darzi, Guang-Zhong Yang, et al., Eds.: The Lancet Commission; The Imperial College, (2012)

Collaboration between The Lancet and Imperial College London, UK, has resulted in a new Commission, which examines how medical technology should best be used to improve health in low- and middle-income countries.
