Over the next few weeks, PSFK is running a trends research and innovation project in association with UNICEF. We are researching – with your help – the development of key trends that impact health and wellbeing and then using our findings to develop with partners concepts that UNICEF and likeminded organizations could consider deploying across the world.

Below are highlights from the developments in health technology and relevant resources that the PSFK audience has submitted thus far to PSFKu.com:
