UNICEF innovation needs your help to identify technologies that can support the diagnosis of pneumonia in low-resource settings.

Together with its partners, UNICEF Supply Division has identified the need for an improved tool to support community health workers (CHWs) with the diagnosis of pneumonia of children under five years of age. To address this need, we are interested to learn of products or technologies, either fully developed or under development relevant for improving pneumonia diagnosis in low-resource settings. Therefore, we invite industry, academia and others to respond to this Request for Information.
