More Conferences: Private Sector for Global Health

Besides the conference below there are several more coming up (see our previous post for a more complete list):

Unite for Sight, April 2007 – Is anyone attending? We may be going, email us if you want to meet up.
Global Philanthropy Forum @Google, April 2007

The folks at UToronto have put together a conference on Private Sector involvement with a heavy dose of biotech and global health. They have a blockbuster lineup including CK Prahalad, see the PDF Flyer for more details. Maybe someone can suggest a mockcelebrity death match” between the CK and Karnani at one of these conferences, I bet that would garner a huge turnout.

May 2-4 2007, MaRS Discovery District, Toronto: A three-day conference organized by the McLaughlin-Rotman Centre, Program on Life Sciences and Global Health at the University of Toronto, bringing together leaders from the global health community and executives of biotechnology firms from India, China, Brazil, South Africa, Canada, and the United States.

March 28th Update: This is Ben with a short addendum to Aman’s list. There’s a conference in Delhi April 12-13th organized by KfW, USAID/India, Packard Foundation and PSP-One called Vouchers for Health: Increasing Access, Equity, and Quality. I plan to attend and cover it for the THDblog.
