Celebrating 20 Years of Halteres Associates:
A Celebration, A Retrospective, and What’s Next
At Halteres Associates, we are celebrating our 20th Anniversary, and we want to acknowledge and thank our many constituents around the world for their support and allowing us to assist them with their innovations. When we started Halteres Associates, we had no idea where it would take us, and the last twenty years have been an exciting and fulfilling journey.
We would like to take some time now to reflect on where we have been as a company, the changes we have seen in the global healthcare community, and where we believe things are headed for diagnostics and devices. There has been quite a bit of change in our industry in the last twenty years, especially regarding the level of sophistication used to define and evaluate the entire diagnostic ecosystem, including how new technologies may best address market and product needs and opportunities. We have seen these changes develop across the board with our industry and academic partners, NGOs and global health partners (including with funding and policymakers), ministries of health, and other key stakeholders. While arguments can always be made to develop new technologies, it is now more widely understood that it is equally important to demonstrate and deliver positive impacts. We believe that this is a good time to take stock of what we have learned and how we can use that knowledge to anticipate what’s ahead. We look forward to what the next 20 years will bring, and to making new connections in this ever-evolving global health industry.
Thank you for your support, and we hope you enjoy this reflection on the first 20 years of Halteres Associates.
