NGO Innovarte meets with the Catholic University of Peru to learn more about the technology that will contribute to the WHO C-TAP.


On May 19th, NGO INNOVARTE and AIS Peru held a meeting with representatives of the Catholic University of Peru in the city of Lima.

During the meeting, Benjamín Castañeda Aphan, Director of Academic Relations of the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and Sandra Pérez, Director of Certifications and Quality, shared details about the low oxygen consumption mechanical ventilator developed by researchers at their university in the context of the pandemic and successfully used by the Peruvian health system during the health crisis.

NGO INNOVARTE took this opportunity to thank the University for agreeing to transfer technologies through the C-TAP platform by offering its licensing in a non-exclusive and transparent basis. This event demonstrates the great work that this university has developed and the global solidarity that is needed to address public health challenges at the national, regional and global levels.

At the meeting, it was possible to consolidate the lines of work that will be opened to continue promoting access to healthcare through platforms such as C-TAP and the strengthening of national regulations for the production of medical equipment in Peru.
