Transformational thinking in global medical donations
With a growing trend to develop alternative and more resilient communities, what will a new paradigm look like? The Executive Forum will bring together global health leaders from over 50 organizations to explore how we can collectively best design resilient and sustainable health systems that draw on all available resources and expertise to improve health for all.

Challenge panels
Since the emergence and/or re-emergence of SARS, H1N1 influenza, MERS and Ebola many public and private-sector leaders have seen a need for improved management of global public health emergencies. The consequences of such events on health, education, commerce, transportation and beyond, have increased interest in building coordinated global responses to infectious threats, many of which could globally disrupt health and markets. Panelists will share their thoughts on improving international management and response to outbreaks.
