Across the globe the health of individuals, their communities and the planet is in crisis as key drivers including rising inequity, food insecurity, the burden of chronic diseases and climate change continue unabated. Access to healthcare is subjected to increasing stresses from global economics because of the rising cost of healthcare and ever increasing differences between communities. These interconnected issues are threatening the health and wellbeing of people and communities globally: yet this crisis offers us the opportunity to rethink our understanding of health and healthcare delivery.
This symposium is free to attend and will harness learning across the globe to consider the transformations required for a healthy sustainable world.
The symposium will include sessions focussed on the transformative shift from sickness to wellness, from products to services, towards innovative and frugal technological solutions that support people and communities, and a new health operating system.
This symposium brings the best minds together and expertise of key individuals to help solve these conundrums in practical, sustainable and hopeful ways and highlight recommendations for the next 5-10 years. Cambridge has a real opportunity to influence, bringing together researchers, policy makers, and practitioners from disciplines encompassing health, sustainability and global issues who possess both the passion and knowledge to contribute to these transformations.
