The NEST360° team is creating a comprehensive Landscaping Document to highlight technologies that are in development or commercially available for newborn care in low-resource settings. NEST360° will host the results of the landscaping process in a publicly available online compendium, starting June 2019, and will update the landscaping document every six months. To complete this landscaping document, we will ask developers and manufacturers of promising technologies to fill out a standardized online form, documenting key features of their technology (performance, operating characteristics, stability, price, etc). Similar landscaping documents, featuring medicines and diagnostics available for communicable diseases (e.g., HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria), are published by organizations such as UNITAID, an organization hosted by the World Health Organization. In parallel to the landscaping document, the NEST360° team is working with local and global stakeholders to review and refine appropriate attributes for each product category, ensuring the criteria for affordability, ease-of-use, ruggedness, and effectiveness are appropriately defined through a Needs Assessment. The Sr Market Access Manager will manage and drive these components, and the necessary partnerships, of the NEST360° program.
