InnovationsCZ partners with low-resource communities to identify and address the healthcare inequities that impact their lives. Using a multisectoral approach, InnovationsCZ transforms the systems that created the problem in the first place through the development of community co-designed prototypes, products, processes, programs, and platforms. We work to achieve broad, sustained impact by focusing on the solutions that contribute to the long-term wellbeing and resilience of individuals, communities, and society.
Who We Are
Co-founders, Margaret Salmon, MD, MPH, and Christian Salmon, DSc, employ human-centered design methodology to first identify global healthcare deficits. They then mobilize a multidisciplinary team, working with local populations, to brainstorm ideas on local manufacture of prototypes to design inexpensive solutions using indigenous products. They follow up this work with observational study, validation and randomized control trials, publishing results in peer-reviewed journals.
With this approach, they have pioneered innovative products, techniques, and services to improve the local provision of healthcare to those living in great poverty and conflict.
