Innovations are transforming the way healthcare is delivered, but half of the world's population still doesn't have access to the essential health services they need. At Devex, we focus on the global development community, and our coverage includes efforts to leverage the technological and financial capability of Silicon Valley to advance global health.
This October, Devex was pleased to present our first Bay Area event designed to address the practical hurdles associated with bringing global health innovations to scale and strengthening health systems. The event kicked off with a seated lunch at noon and was followed by engaging panel discussions and interactive sessions pointing to what's working and how to scale it up.
The half-day event convened over 100 influential stakeholders including researchers, technologists, investors, donors, NGO leaders, and more. Together, they dove deeper into the root of issues such as how to make global health innovations scalable and how to generate investment in health systems. With the event, we hope to provide a platform for a range of actors to explore and form the kinds of partnerships needed to bridge the divide between health innovations in Silicon Valley and health needs globally.
