Our key objective is to celebrate, source, and supply innovations across 12 COVID-19 categories (i.e. response areas). The growing list of 800+ featured innovations includes those that are ready to deploy, plus innovations that could be adapted for COVID-19 responses, or inspire new, much-needed solutions. A smaller list is identified as COVID-19 Recognized Innovations for their response efforts so others can more easily find and use them. We are showcasing COVID-19 stories about hand-picked innovations. We are also actively sourcing new innovations designed in response to COVID-19. We hope you find it valuable as we come together to address this global challenge, and would welcome your support so we can continue to help use innovation in tackling future crises yet to come.
The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak a pandemic and a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Evidence of local transmission of the disease has been found in many countries across all six WHO regions. We believe that innovations - existing and new - across various categories can be instrumental in response and recovery efforts globally.

The COVID-19 Innovation Hub is powered by Global Innovation Exchange (GIE) and is a Joint Initiative of:

We invite additional partners to join the initiative as sponsors, to submit new innovations and/or to co-create cheat sheets that curate the most promising innovations for specific categories, sectors or geographies. Email: partners@globalinnovationexchange.org
