Investing in New Technologies

Monitoring TherapyBDs Global Health Initiative recognizes that diagnostic tools and medical devices commonly used in the developed world do not always meet the unique healthcare demands of the developing world. To improve the delivery of healthcare in these resource-limited settings, BD invests in new technologies that help address site-appropriate healthcare challenges faced by the developing world.

An example of BD's efforts in this area includes the TB Core Team, comprised of BD associates from cross-business segments who are charged with finding new solutions to improve the diagnosis of active tuberculosis disease.
