Unexia is building a decentralized platform to meet the health challenges of the 21st Century
Since the creation of the Millennium Development Goals, humanity has made huge progress against problems like HIV, TB and Malaria. Today, the burden of disease is changing. The health challenges of the 21st Century are complex and interconnected: chronic disease; mental health; antimicrobial resistance; ageing populations; pandemics; climate change and more. The solutions to these era-defining problems lie beyond the remit of our global health institutions alone.
Developing countries face a rising wave of chronic diseases (NCDs) related to tobacco, alcohol, industrially processed foods and fossil fuels. NCDs already account for over 60% of the global burden of disease, but they receive just 2-3% of development assistance for health each year.
In an interconnected world, we all stand to benefit from each other's health - and we are all paying a price for chronic diseases. NCDs are estimated to cost the global economy over $2 trillion per annum (World Economic Forum):
Everyone benefits whenever someone reduces this problem. So let's connect the dots with a system that rewards funders and implementers for their positive impact.
Decentralized technologies can create a new class of public goods. Unexia will support emerging web3 innovations to nurture a vibrant ecosystem of decentralised Apps (dApps) for health.
Unexia will be the world's first blockchain platform built for global health financing and impact.
Unexia enables greater transparency, democracy, and sustainability in global health decisions. This leads to more effective, efficient, and equitable resource distribution.
Right time, right place, right scale funding for NCDs: By linking up financing, impact and governance innovations, the Unexia platform enables funders and implementers to jointly generate shared value and receive a return on investments in health.
