Accelerating Health Innovations: How to Leverage Public-Private Partnerships to Save and Improve Lives
Speaker: Amie Batson, Chief Strategy Officer, Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH).
No child should die of a preventable disease, all mothers should have safe births and healthy newborns, and every community should have the tools it needs to thrive. Transformative innovations in new technologies and business strategies are needed to achieve that vision. In addition to developing and commercializing lifesaving health technologies, PATH brings innovations to market dynamics, health systems, collaboration models, and community engagement. Amie Batson discussed system bottlenecks to the widespread diffusion of new health technologies and PATH’s approach to ensuring faster uptake for these technologies. She also highlighted examples from innovative financing mechanisms to create incentives for global health innovation.
