Accelerating Innovation for Impact: Linking Innovations, Implementers and Investments to Drive Progress towards SDG3 at 2019 World Health Summit
Progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are uneven, and we are not moving fast enough to reach the ambitious 2030 goals. New technologies, service delivery models and financing solutions are essential to reach Universal Health Coverage and other health related SDG-targets. Innovations can play a key role for leaving no one behind.
While innovations are already transforming the health, these do not always get adopted on scale to deliver impact. There is a disconnect between innovators and implementers that needs to be bridged. Leveraging innovations need the creation of linkages between innovations, technologies, country needs and investments. The AIDS response has demonstrated that a multisectoral response that puts communities at the centre is critical for success. Closing the gap to Health for All needs sustained partnership of communities, governments, innovators and the private sector that develop a shared commitment to leave no one behind.
This high-level panel will serve as a forum to explore what it takes to meaningfully create such linkages; how to build an environment where health innovations can flourish and be linked to the needs of countries. Panellists will highlight the importance of facilitating new cooperation models across countries and sectors. They will identify ways to break down common barriers to accelerate uptake of innovations and how to nurture sustainability of national ecosystems.
