The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) calls on interested parties in the Americas to present innovative research and development projects for medicines and other health technologies. The deadline for submission is 25 September.
The objective of this appeal is to bring together initiatives proposing innovative mechanisms to coordinate and finance the development of medicines and other health technologies for middle- and low-income countries in the region.
The call for proposals is open to all sectors. Thus, it is hoped that in addition to the PAHO/WHO member countries, initiatives will also be received from civil society, academic and research centres, the private sector, nongovernmental public health organizations, and researchers.
All the documentation and additional information is available in the PRAIS Community of Practice "Proyectos de demostración CEWG/Demonstration Projects CEWG" (www.paho.org/prais) . The projects should preferably be presented in English. Interested parties can send their initiatives directly to: cewgdemonstrations at paho.org<mailto:cewgdemonstrations at paho.org> . They should use the standard template for a candidate demonstration project and the WHO conflict of interest statement.
