Patron’s Webinar offered by Roche (June 15, 2022)

15. June @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Public health problems, coupled with the Covid-19 pandemic, have strained systems around the globe and have highlighted the importance of health system sustainability. Today more than ever, achieving access to high quality health care and advances in science and technology is one of the goals of every country.

This is why the Movement Health 2030, a group led globally by Roche and the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies,  was born in 2020 as a non-profit organization that articulates the public and private sector to transform the world’s health systems, addressing the biggest challenges of the sector by strengthening public policies and developing innovative and scalable solutions.

In this Webinar we will discuss the importance of collaboration between the public and private sectors in innovation and health policy strengthening initiatives such as MH2030; and how these can contribute to the transformation of Latin American health systems.
