The Citizen Health Innovators Map provides an online geospatial inventory of the makers, inventors, and other networks of actors driving democratized health innovation.

The map can be used to examine the locations and projects of health inventors who operate in collaboration with community bio-labs, makerspaces, Fab Labs, crowdfunding platforms, start-ups and hospitals. While the map is intended to provide networking capabilities for the health innovation community, it will also serve as a tool for government regulators, the general public and the at large scientific, bioethics and biosafety communities to identify where activities are occurring, and how fast it is expanding.

This map is based on publicly available data from official websites, scientific literature, government reports and records, and newspaper and journal articles, but this field is dynamic, and the map is a work in progress. Comments can be sent to Thank you for taking a look: All suggestions will be reviewed and incorporated into the map.
