Looking Toward the Future: Innovation for Global Health Impact
What exactly is innovation and how do we know it when we see it? How can we design, implement and manage innovative ideas to drive global health solutions? And, most importantly, how do we know if we are making an impact on the health of communities worldwide?
The 2014 Triangle Global Health Conference explored how to bridge the gap between innovations in research and program implementation. The 2018 Triangle Global Health Annual Conference will bring together global health leaders to address the significant ways that we can utilize innovative ideas to have a positive impact on the communities we serve. This year, our conference will address innovation from a broader and more comprehensive viewpoint.
The conference will showcase examples of innovation as well as a variety of definitions of "innovation": Innovation can be a new idea, program, or more-effective device or process. Innovation can also be used to design, implement and evaluate more effective solutions.
Attendees and presenters will explore expanded notions of innovation that are inclusive of, but far broader than technology alone. Sessions will delve into various types of innovation including global health program innovation, medical technology, mHealth and innovative business models.
We look forward to exploring the role of innovation in global health and hope you will join us!
