2022 compendium of innovative health technologies

Welcome! You are invited to a webinar

When: Jun 28, 2022 02:00 PM Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna

Registration: Please register in advance 

 After registration, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.


The objective of the Compendium is to compile and showcase emerging innovative health technologies for low-resource settings. WHO performs rapid evidence-based assessments focused on the life cycle of health technology in low-resource settings. The evaluation includes:

  • technical assessments
  • health technology assessments
  • regulatory system assessment
  • quality system assessments
  • management assessment
  • safe use assessments. 

The compendium presents manufacturer-reported information and WHO assessment results of health technologies with the potential to improve health outcomes and quality of life, or to offer a solution to an unmet medical/health technology need.  It sheds light on advantages and challenges associated with implementing innovative health technologies in low-resource settings and can be used by NGOs, governments, and other stakeholders to support procurement decisions.

The compendium acknowledges success stories and raises awareness of the pressing need for appropriate and affordable health solutions. It also encourages more innovative efforts directly from the field. Ultimately, the Compendium aims to increase investment in health technology towards universal access to essential health technologies.

EBME Expo Information - Registration Now OPEN!

The EBME Expo is an independent educational event bringing together healthcare professionals who are responsible for the management of medical equipment. These healthcare professionals are involved in areas such as procurement, maintenance, user training, and managing inventories.

Thanks to the sponsorship of our 110+ exhibitors, this independent exhibition is offered free of charge to all visitors. Furthermore, there are three workshops in the break out areas and many of our exhibitors provide technical demonstrations.

For our 2022 event on the 28th & 29th June, we are excited to announce that we will be moving to the Coventry Building Society Arena (Formerly the Ricoh Arena), Coventry, UK.  This larger venue has been chosen so that we can expand to host a second conference focusing on ‘The Operating Theatre’, and to keep up with demand from both exhibitors and delegates.  Operating theatre staff are the largest group of medical equipment users in hospitals, and this is why we believe they will complement our current audience.
