Global atlas of medical devices 2022


The focus of the 2022 edition of the Global Atlas is to point out how the status of medical device topics supports or hinders the accomplishment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and supports the increased access to priority medical devices (including in vitro diagnostics) for emergencies, well-being, and universal health coverage (UCH). The country profiles incorporate facts indicating the national status of medical devices in areas such as: medical device policies, regulations, incorporation, lists, inventories, nomenclature, health technology assessment, management, and biomedical engineering resources. This publication is intended for use as a reference by decision-makers in Ministries of Health, non-governmental organizations and academic institutions involved in health technology at the district, national, regional, or global levels. This publication has been in consultation during a period of 6 months in 2021 and 2022 and it is referred to in the World Health Assembly Report WHA75 /11 and addendum WHA75/11 Add.1 on standardization of medical devices nomenclature.
