The "Global Forum on Research and Innovation for Health 2015" to be held on August 24-27, 2015 at the PICC.
The Global Forum on Research and Innovation for Health 2015 aims to identify solutions to the world's unmet health needs through research and innovation
The Global Forum on Research and Innovation for Health builds on and expands the scope and impact of the previous "Global Forum for Health Research" – in support of a new world in which development is global and in which research and innovation capacity is increasingly a domain where everyone participates – high, middle and low income countries.
To deliver this new Forum 2015, the Council on Health Research for Development (COHRED) has partnered with the Philippines to provide a unique global platform enabling the global research and innovation agenda to be set and solved by all – not just by a few – with the ultimate outcome of improving health, equity and socio-economic development in a sustainable manner. This is possible thanks to the enthusiastic support of the Philippine's Department of Science and Technology, Department of Health and the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development.
Aimed at all stakeholders in development – public, private and non-profit – the Forum format and participation is innovative in itself. Offering a wide variety of engagement formats, the Forum encourages all who are passionate about solving health and equity through research and innovation to join in the ways that suit their contributions best. The Forum programme includes the conference, of course, but also a global discussion platform to encourage participation even of those who are not able to make it to Manila, a film festival and photo competition, a global university debating convention, and exposure to a business incubator for early innovations, and more.
Please explore the website, join the Forum 2015, and begin the global search for new ways to address health challenges, increasing inequity and sustainable socio-economic development for all.
