As scientific concepts are studied and expand our awareness of what is possible, as well as impossible, we can look toward a much brighter future. Global Health Technologies Coalition is there to help transform the world that we live in in the following ways:
Vaccines can help treat some of the most devastating diseases in the world, and these treatments and cures are being developed more often all the time. For example, vaccines are available for those that have AIDS, HIV, and they can be administered through antiretroviral treatments similar to those that were useful in eradicating polio, primarily because of the global health initiatives that have led to better technology.
There are so many companies such as Fleet Bioprocessing that have made investments into research and science, helping to create over 80 new vaccines, diagnostic tests, pharmaceutical drugs, and tools that have been used since the turn of the millennium. Many of these tools have led to saving nearly 400,000 lives, and have prevented nearly 700,000 new infections, such as those related to meningitis a vaccine, something that has been available as long as malaria drugs, which has also helped save over 60% of the people that had malaria since the year 2000. Additionally, science has helped produce nearly 700 global health technologies that are thought to be turning points for improvements in the future.
Science Allows Communities and Users to Get Access to the Right Tools for Future Improvements
Developing tool is really the key to driving the global health initiatives forward; these tools are used in context with communities around the world. Examples, such as diagnostic tests that are used to help identify and prevent epidemics, are able to our communities worldwide deliver quick results. An example of this would be women who would not want to use particular contraceptives or those that would avoid using AIDS or HIV prevention methods, due to their culture or lifestyle.
There are many data analysts, some of which are using surveys to diagnose what is happening, and ultimately test enough people in order to determine how social systems can operate within these environments where these new technologies can be used. These can become very complex, yet we need to have a better understanding of them and refined technology so that the social impact will be as powerful as possible.
Science is able to help detect, predict, and also track health issues that could be challenging us today and tomorrow.
When the weather is forecast, this is the result of identifying weather patterns or diseases and outbreaks can be also identified because of employing genomics, evolutionary theory, plus help us develop antibiotics, using hybrid systems that are the result of crowdsourcing, surveillance, and also using science to help us determine where disease outbreaks are going to occur and allow us to predict what needs to be done as emerging health challenges occur. By having this ability to detect everything early, you can prevent epidemics from happening, primarily because you are able to mount an effective response.
Science Allows Us to Create Better Interventions and Design Health-related Programs That Can Impact Our Society in a Positive Way
An insecticide-treated bed net, for example, might need to be replaced, or you may be determining how many tears it will take before something stops working. When you are in an era with limited resources, is it possible for these interventions and technologies to help as many people in countries worldwide as possible? Handwashing habits are things that some people must change in order to reduce childhood deaths, or even reduce diarrheal disease.
These ideas and questions are the results of health researchers, data analysts, and scientists that are trying their best to coordinate with as many labs and offices as possible located around the world and in the United States. By obtaining the answers that are necessary to answer these questions, and address these issues, more lives can be saved and money can be well spent.
