Excerpt
1. Introduction When we consider the role of health technology and pharmaceuticals in public health, a number of critical questions arise: “Children are the future” as everyone says – so why are millions of children’s lives being cut short or blighted by polio, measles and other vaccinepreventable diseases, when cheap and easy interventions, delivered by simple methods, are readily available? Everyone should be able to access essential drugs when they need them to achieve and maintain a healthy life, so why do millions of people find them too expensive, too far away, failing to meet quality standards, or just therapeutically inappropriate? Safe blood and blood products are vital to the management of many diseases, so why are there so few sources of safe blood and almost no national blood policies in place in developing countries? Why are bloodborne pathogens spreading so widely through unsafe injections? At a time when so many new and specialized clinical and diagnostic facilities are becoming available for the most sophisticated uses, why is it so hard to find a functioning basic radiology unit in developing countries? Why do we have such extreme divisions between those who have access to health information technology, and those who do not – a true digital divide?
