SAHTAC endorses SIGHT Fund

The South African Health Technological Advocacy Coalition (SAHTAC) has endorsed the new proposal to drive inclusive innovation at USAID and stock the global health toolbox of the future. The Supporting Innovative Global Health Technologies (SIGHT) Fund is a GHTC policy proposal to create a new and additive source of flexible, catalytic funding at the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to conduct research, development, and deployment of global health products through a new appropriation to the USAID Global Health Bureau. Through an initial multi-year appropriation of $750 million available over three years, the fund would be used to advance new global health products through the research pipeline- with an emphasis on clinical development, regulatory approval, and product introduction- prioritising support for innovators close to affected communities and the engagement of end users in the research process.
