Global Health Accelerator
The Global Health Accelerator, a proposed mechanism to capitalize on the growing pool of innovation and local expertise in developing countries, would provide a suite of support services to biotechnology firms in emerging markets. In particular, the Accelerator would target firms undertaking research and product development for neglected disease technologies. The services would include business support services, partnering opportunities with Product Development Partnerships and Northern researchers and other forms of capacity building assistance.
