Science is continually expanding in our ability to understand what will happen in the future related to scientific discoveries. Global Health Technologies Coalition is dedicated to making sure that science can transform the world and has done so in outstanding ways by addressing five separate global health-related issues:
1. Currently science is developing several different cures and treatments, including vaccines, that is greatly helping with current worldwide diseases.
Vaccines have been used in recent times, helping to eradicate polio, along with antiretroviral treatments which have extended the lives of those that have AIDS, and tremendous progress has been seen in new health technologies. Research, and a significant number of investments, have led to the creation of drugs, vaccines, diagnostic procedures, and many tools that are used by those in the medical profession since 2000. These tools include those that have helped save hundreds of thousands of lives, prevent a multitude of new infections, specifically with malaria drugs that have helped children and prevented a large number of deaths since 2000. Science is also provided several different global health technologies numbering in the hundreds which are poised to become very successful for conditions that we may soon face and even regard as normal. See here for immunoassay development process.
2. Science is there to help communities worldwide utilize tools that can help us.
The progress of global health has changed the world in many ways; there have been many developments in tools that are used in different communities around the world. There are diagnostic tests that can be administered to quickly deliver effective results, even for remote communities. Additionally, AIDS prevention contraceptives are available to women, even those who do not immediately want to use them due to their cultural or lifestyle choices which can often lead to both solutions and problems that need to be addressed. Additionally, data analyses and diagnostics are enabling social systems and environments to improve as users learn how they operate. There are unique designs that are refined by modern technologies that are somewhat complex, yet they are having a very positive impact on cities and the people that live within them regardless of their location.
3. Sciences allowing us to predict and track emerging could be affecting us adversely in the future.
As a meteorologist can predict the weather, science can help with determining when outbreaks of insect-borne disease will occur and have contributed to the development of antibiotics and hybrid systems that use crowdsourced data that help to predict, track, and initially detect these outbreaks which compose several health challenges for virtually anyone. By having the ability to detect these problems before they occur, epidemics can be averted, primarily because of the response time that is involved that has been developed over the course of several years.
4. Sciences allow us to better target interventions that will have a positive impact on society.
How can tears be assessed to determine how long something will work or how often an insecticide-treated bed net is replaced? Do we live in a world where we have limited resources that may help us predict what interventions and technologies will be produced at a large scale? How exactly can handwashing reduce childhood deaths and also prevent the spread of diarrheal disease? These questions and more are assessed by scientists, health researchers, and data analysts that are working from within their office, in labs, and that many different program sites that are located in America and around the world. By obtaining these answers for us, we can target health solutions that can become much more successful for a reasonable cost.
