Events in Washington, DC and digital campaign focus on the vital role of innovation to tackle global health challenges, and aim to identify actions that power disruptive solutions
Today, PATH is launching a new conversation and call-to-action to highlight and drive forward the Innovation Effect. The Innovation Effect 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 campaign will kick off with two events–held with partners from across public and private sectors–and a series of digital activities to drive engagement in Washington, DC, as well as online through #InnovationEffect.
On June 14, PATH is a top-level sponsor of Devex World 2016, which will bring together hundreds of key players across global development: public and private, NGO and business; foundation and social enterprise, and others. This global development event will discuss critical questions facing the sector and draw out new ideas for achieving higher impact and greater efficiency to transform lives, faster.
On June 15, 2016, PATH, in partnership with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Devex, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Tableau Foundation, United Nations Foundation, US Agency for International Development (USAID) and Johnson & Johnson will host The Innovation Effect: Powering Disruptive Global Health Solutions. This day-long summit will convene more than 150 leaders in innovation and global health–including US government officials, policy experts, private sector leaders, entrepreneurs and thought leaders in international development–to catalyze collaboration, chart a course for policy action, and accelerate momentum to put innovation at the center of global health.
