NEST360 Qualified Technologies

NEST360 uses a five-step process to evaluate technology for newborn care in low-resource settings. Rigorous performance and usability testing is conducted on devices that are available for purchase and have regulatory approval.

NEST360 Qualified Technologies are robust, durable and suitable for low-resource settings and meet pre-defined performance metrics based on the Target Product Profiles (developed in collaboration with UNICEF). The technologies submitted align with our Pathways of Care.

Using the Technology Landscaping Survey, device manufacturers apply for inclusion in the next edition of the NEST360 Newborn Technology Landscape, a compendium of newborn healthcare technologies, both commercially available and in development, suited for use in resource-limited settings.
