novation is an ongoing process," notes Amie Batson, chief strategy officer at PATH. "It starts with understanding the needs and barriers of the affected communities and often requires years of research and development before it is ready for introduction. These 10 innovations will be ready before the end of 2015, but there are some amazing innovations in the pipeline that show great promise beyond as well."

Innovation involves a sharp focus on each problem and the barriers that surround it, followed by the important work that researchers and scientists conduct in the labs and through clinical trials to find the ways we can tackle it.

First a product must be developed with rigorous scientific testing before going through regulatory processes. Then it needs the evidence base so governments can decide whether it's important for their programs. It must be funded. But most important of all, it must have the user in mind.

"Delivering healthcare in the last mile is a tough job. Frontline health workers face broken supply chains, huge distances and limited training. Innovation has to start with the end user," says Erica Kochi, UNICEF Innovation Advisor, who in 2013 was named one of the TIME 100 most influential people in the world. "This means going beyond individual products and services and focusing on building holistic systems that are designed to help frontline health workers save lives in the last mile."

"Developing exciting technologies is only half the battle," says Ms. Batson. "You must make sure that these innovations are affordable, that they reach the people who need them, that healthcare workers are properly trained to deliver them and that they are acceptable to the familiesthe mothers, fathers and elders who make care decisions."

Despite the barriers, significant progress is being made and major partners are optimistic.
