09:00-11:30 The Global Health Gap

SDG 3 calls for healthy lives and wellbeing for all at all ages by 2030. To achieve this goal, we need to address the global health gap, namely the huge health inequities that persist between rich and poor people (both within and across countries) and inequitable access to essential health services and technologies. There is much optimism that biomedical innovations and emerging technologies, notably digital technologies, can be harnessed to close the health gap. At the same time, major gaps in knowledge, evidence and finance and asymmetries of power shape the potential for emerging technologies to benefit health equity. How can improved access to health care and emerging technologies contribute to the SDGs: better health, a healthy workforce, eradication of extreme poverty, improved economic productivity and reduced inequalities? Including Q&A.
