A world where access to the benefits of medical technology is universal.


The EssentialMed Foundation is committed to developing and deploying effective, high-quality and affordable medical devices, adapted to the needs of impoverished communities across the globe.


EssentialMed endeavors to achieve a radical improvement to the cost-benefit paradigm of medical devices. This new approach requires innovation at all the levels of the value chain in order to maximize the impact in terms of Global Health (focus on downstream benefits rather than upstream earnings). EssentialMed thus introduced the concept of the "Value Cross".
