The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) is a global healthcare community dedicated to developing an evidence base for healthcare policy, culminating in a recurring 2-day summit which brings together high-level academics, researchers, policymakers and other healthcare professionals from all over the globe to discuss healthcare innovation and best practices on this unique platform.
Forums and panel discussions are generating interdisciplinary, evidence-based reports on topics including Autism, Behavioral Insights, Cardiovascular Disease, the Economic Benefits of Investing in Health, Healthy Populations, and Precision Medicine. WISH also reported on its ongoing impact locally and globally on issues previously highlighted at WISH, such as Diabetes, Accountable Care, and Patient Safety.
Further to its forums on health policy research , the summit featured Innovation Showcases from around the world that are shaping the design, delivery, and financing of care, as well as a cohort of Young Innovators, whose contributions to global health deserve wider recognition.
The summit which was held on 29th and 30th November 2016 at the Qatar National Convention Center saw over 1,500 delegates from more than 100countries. With almost 50 ministerial delegations a quarter of the world’s health ministries were represented.
