Novartis to host stakeholder dialogue on ways to improve access to healthcare in lower-income countries
The event will take place on November 21 in Basel.
Oct 16, 2017
The third Novartis Social Business stakeholder dialogue, co-hosted this year with Novartis Oncology, will bring together a cross-section of stakeholders in Basel on November 21. They will discuss opportunities and innovations that will define the future of access programs and social business models in developing countries.
The event will be an opportunity to reflect on how access models have helped deliver better healthcare for populations living at the base of the pyramid – including key hurdles and achievements, and how learnings can help define next steps. It will also provide perspectives on how innovative partnerships, inclusive business approaches, digital health, impact investment and local solutions can help shape the future of access to healthcare in lower-income countries.
Speakers and panelists will include a broad spectrum of representatives from patient groups, think tanks, private foundations and healthcare practitioners, including The Max Foundation, the Ethiopian Red Cross, FSG, Allied World Healthcare, Bamboo Capital Partners, the Cameroonian Society of Cardiology, the Medtronic Foundation, and the Myanmar Health and Development Consortium.
Jayasree K. Iyer, executive director of the Access to Medicine Foundation, and Raj Panjabi, co-founder and CEO of Last Mile Health and 2017 TED Prize winner, will also speak during the day.

Novartis Social Business stakeholder dialogue events on access to healthcare
All our Novartis Social Business programs take a “learn by doing” approach as we look for new and better ways to expand access to healthcare in lower-income settings. As part of that, we are committed to transparency and dialogue – and our series of stakeholder events endeavors to do just that.
