Dr Rifat Atun, Professor, Global Health Systems, Harvard University

The coalescing of medical technology advances, vastly improved distribution of knowledge capital, and an increased sense of urgency brought on by the pandemic is ushering in a new era of opportunity for public health leaders, health entrepreneurs, and private investors.

Movement Health 2030 (a global initiative powered by Roche and Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies to accelerate scalable healthcare solutions) and Baraka Impact Finance (an online marketplace and expert advisory catalyzing private sector investment in the health sector of emerging markets) are at the forefront of efforts designed to achieve systemic change within global healthcare ecosystems.

This session will explore the technological and financial innovations and stakeholders defining this new era of possibility for transposing sustainable, and scalable global health solutions to as many corners of the planet as possible.
