A bit about the event.
Fully realizing the power of innovation to tackle the world’s greatest global health challenges will require dedicated efforts. Policy is key. When policy drives innovation and nurtures the innovation process, the result is visionary, sustainable change. This event will bring together established players and new voices to discuss how US policy can help bring about that transformation. How can the United States government make catalytic investments that create lasting change? What partners and insights will be needed from diverse sectors? What programs can we model or expand to deliver equitable progress? The goal of this event is an interactive, engaging conversation that propels us beyond dialogue to an actionable plan for policy change.
