    schema:description "Medical Devices and Biomaterials for the Developing World focuses on the adoption of medical technology in the developing world, specifically focusing on the the role that new biomaterials can play. It explores the difficulties that accompany the successful transfer of technologies between disparate settings, focusing on the cases of Ghana and Nicaragua as examples of the broader situations in West Africa and Central and South America. These two regions are uniquely positioned with regard to health care and technological capabilities, and both stand to grow significantly in the coming years. Biomaterials represent an enormous opportunity for developing societies to become active participants in the development of new technologies, and can be used in the treatment of diseases throughout the developing world and beyond. The authors of this book argue that advanced technology should be aligned with the needs of developing and emerging markets, and that an alternative definition of technology should be embraced: one that considers natural sources for materials and tools for treatment, and that is not restricted to traditional computerized and electronic technologies."@en ;
