Health Innovation Exchange

The Health Innovation Exchange (HIEx) is a vibrant and neutral facilitator that brings together innovative solutions for health, particularly in the global South. As a multilayered platform, it connects countries and systems, identifies their health-specific priorities or challenges, and works to ensure that investments are channeled to support high-potential innovations for health that help countries move towards impact for the SDGs.

Launched by UNAIDS in Geneva, Switzerland in May 2019, the HIEx as a global entity also advocates for indigenous solutions, local production and multi-sectoral partnerships with communities.

Founded on a shared commitment that no one is left behind in the journey towards the SDGs, the HIEx forges a community of political leaders, decision makers, health experts, technology and science leaders, innovators, investors, accelerators and implementers and all those who can share, explore and synergize efforts for sustainable impact.

The Health Innovation Exchange is about
  • Creating connections between innovations,
    ecosystems and health leaders
  • Access to new technology and innovative
    solutions
  • Ensuring that investments deliver for countries,
    communities and people
  • Driving impact for the SDGs.

In collaboration with StartupBlink

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting global crisis continue to highlight the crucial importance of ensuring that our health systems are strong and that countries have the necessary technologies and capacities to respond to health challenges. At the same time, the pandemic is inspiring new ideas and solutions from around the world and putting global solidarity, shared experiences and common goals at the forefront of our response to this global crisis. We are currently in the midst of an unprecedented wave of fast-paced innovation from all sectors of life as the world stands up to fight this pandemic. Through the HIEx, we want to make sure that these innovations reach a wider audience and the knowledge is shared as a global good.
