Health and development leaders from across the globe will be in New York City from September 16 to October 1 to participate in the United Nations (UN) General Assembly and the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting. At both events, PATH will advocate for innovative solutions that address overlooked health issues and advance commitments toward improving the health of women and children.
PATH will participate in key events organized around this high-level meeting. Our focus will be on advocating for policies and resources to improve maternal and child health and showcasing how our private partnerships can achieve that goal. Some highlights of PATH's participation in the global event include:
The Millennium Development Goals have been an important catalyst toward identifying transformative global health innovations. What are the critical elements to build on this momentum post-2015 and accelerate the discovery and development of game-changing innovations that will revolutionize global health by 2030?
On September 24, PATH and the Financial Times will convene leading influencers in innovation in a dynamic panel discussion moderated by Financial Times deputy editor for analysis, Andrew Jack. Speakers will include Steve Davis, PATH president and CEO; HRH Princess Sarah Zeid, Princess of Jordan; Børge Brende, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Norway; and Christopher Egerton-Warburton, fund manager, global health investment fund and founding partner of Lion's Head Global Partners. The esteemed group will share their insights on how to fast-track the process to identify innovations that can "bend the curve" toward accelerated global health progress. The event will also kick off Innovation Countdown 2030, a year-long project to identify global health innovations in the pipeline that can be taken to scale in the next 15 years.
Steve Davis will attend the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting from September 21 to 24. The event brings together heads of state, chief executives, government and nonprofit leaders, and scholars to analyze pressing global challenges, discuss solutions, and build lasting partnerships to create positive social change.
At CGI, PATH will announce an exciting new commitment for the coming year. More information on this commitment and its potential to impact one million lives will be made available on www.path.org during the CGI annual meeting.
