The Innovation Effect

Powering Disruptive Global Health Solutions

About

A bit about the event.



Please join PATH, alongside its partners, Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Devex, Tableau Foundation, United Nations Foundation, US Agency for International Development (USAID), and 150 diverse stakeholders on June 15 for The Innovation Effect: Powering Disruptive Global Health Solutions. This one-day, invitation-only event will invite participants to reimagine innovation and chart a course for policy action to tackle the world’s biggest global health challenges.

What is the Innovation Effect? It happens when unique partnerships, disruptive technologies, transformed systems, and data-driven insights combine–in often unexpected ways–creating dramatic improvements in the health and well-being of people around the world. The Innovation Effect can make what was once thought impossible, possible. It can make 1+1 equal 3.

Step-by-step, the world has made progress. But with innovation at the center of global health, we can disrupt the pace of change and transform lives, faster. Will you join us?

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.

Steve Davis, President & CEO, PATH

Ariel Pablos-Mendez, Assistant Administrator for Global Health & Child and Maternal Survival Coordinator, U.S. Agency for International Development

Tom Frieden, Director, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Traditional thinking relegates innovation to biomedical R&D, disease surveillance, and healthcare delivery, and yet it is also much, much more. What is innovation, and what does “much more” really mean today?

Steve Davis, President & CEO, PATH
Tom Frieden, Director, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

What epidemiological and demographic transitions are transforming our global health innovation needs? How is the digital and data revolution expanding what is possible? What further metamorphosis will advances in genomics catalyze?

Moderator: Raj Kumar, Founding President and Editor-in-Chief, Devex
Jackie Chang, Global Partnerships for Free Basics, Facebook
David Fleming, Vice President, Public Health, PATH
Neal Myrick, Director, Tableau Foundation
Clayton Sims, Vice President of Mobile Development, Dimagi

Policymakers and innovators do not always share the same definition of innovation, nor how to implement and scale its uptake. How can policymakers and innovators engage earlier in the product development process to speed development and access to technologies?

Moderator: Charles Kenny, Contributing Editor, Foreign Policy Magazine and Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development
Ann Mei Chang, Chief Innovation Officer & Executive Director, Global Development Lab, USAID
Inder Singh, CEO, KINSA
Innovation Vignette | Innovation for Women: a View From Uganda

Women are both innovators and critical consumers of innovation. What are the technologies that will advance women’s empowerment (ranging from menstrual health solutions to reproductive health to microfinance), and what are the best science and policies for those innovations? How do we support and cultivate women innovators in the developing world?

Moderator: Kathy Calvin, President & CEO, UN Foundation
Adepeju Jaiyeoba, CEO, Mother’s Deliver Kit & Member, YALI Network
Stephenie Foster, Senior Advisor, Secretary's Office of Global Women's Issues, U.S. Department of State
Daniel Grossman, Senior Director, Global Health Innovation, Medtronic

What should be the topline innovation goals of the new administration, as it sets its global health strategy? What concrete steps will be essential to operationalizing those goals?
