dc.description.abstractIf the developing world is to overcome its lack of useful medical technologies, the innovation to do so must come from within; the developed world has shown minimal interest in pursuing technologies for markets with only nominal financial returns. In order to succeed in their work abroad, biomedical engineers from developed countries must transition from being providers of solutions to enablers of local innovation, thus contributing directly to both education and implementation.en_US
