The Health Research Challenge for Impact (HRCI) project conducted coordinated research to accelerate the development and introduction of low-cost, culturally acceptable, preventive, and curative interventions for the main causes of maternal, newborn, and child deaths. HRCI was a five-year project implemented by the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Bloomberg School of Public Health Department of International Health, Save the Children, and several global institutional partners. HRCI provided the technical capability, geographical reach, and translational potential needed to successfully implement a research-to-use agenda to address key maternal, newborn, and child health, and nutrition issues.

The HealthTech V project (2011-2016) concluded five consecutive generations and nearly 30 years of the HealthTech projects. These projects identified and advanced technology solutions for the most pressing health issues in the developing world. Led by PATH, in partnership with the Public Health Institute, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, WHO, and UNICEF, HealthTech V continued the preceding generations of HealthTech innovations with an emphasis on needs assessment, technology design and development, and introduction and scale-up to the field through distribution, marketing, and licensing activities.
