Global Health Ideas

Finding global health solutions through innovation and technology

Upcoming Conferences: Global Philanthropy, Improving Access to Health Tech, and more…

We did a previous post on conferences that I have re-listed below. There are also some additions that look very interesting. The conference in Feb on access to essential health technologies has quite a line up of guests and topics, I encourage you to look at their agenda. Also the short meeting with Technology Managers for Global Health is coming up and their CEO, Usha Balakrishnan, is doing some great work. She founded this group of university technology transfer officers to mobilize them to use their skills and networks to benefit global health. And of course there is the Global Philanthropy Forum at the Googleplex, which will have a heavy focus on private sector impact.

(APRIL 11th) Global Philanthropy Forum. Bringing together philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, and other experts from around the world, the 6th Annual Global Philanthropy Forum Conference will explore philanthropic efforts to combat poverty, promote global health, and halt climate change by leveraging the power of markets and private enterprise.
