Nanomedicine, Poverty and Development


  • Noela Invernizzi
  • Guillermo Foladori


The application of nanotechnologies in the field of health is profiled as one of the most promising. Nanomedicine is even seen as a fundamental element in the fight against poverty. Nevertheless, Noela Invernizzi and Guillermo Foladori argue that intrinsic characteristics of nanomedicine could widen still further the gap between haves and have-nots. Development (2006) 49, 114–118. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100301
