The Global Health Medical Device Compendium is an inventory of medical devices designed for use and/or implemented within resource-limited settings.

The compendium is sortable by health topic (e.g., Malaria and HIV/AIDS), classification (i.e., Preventative, Diagnosis or Treatment), scope (i.e., Prototype, Clinical trial, Commercialized) and location (by continent). New devices can be added using Form:Medical Device.

The following table shows three devices per medical topic. You can also drill down by topic, classification, scope and/or location.
