This publication explores how governments, researchers, companies, practitioners, patients and citizens around the world are collaborating in new ways to open up health innovation. It also analyses an emerging set of methods which involve a wide range of people, including health policy makers and leaders, with several overlapping goals. Some seek to make health innovation more efficient, or to inform it with a better understanding more responsive to population and health system needs. Others seek to make health innovation more democratic, by giving citizens a greater say in setting priorities. And some seek to do all three of these things.
