Healthcare systems around the world face large, persistent, and growing disparities, which create significant challenges to health equity. Health inequity and inequality are experienced across many dimensions: geography, gender, socio-economic status, education, culture, race, or medical condition.
Achieving health equity means ensuring that healthcare system resources are used appropriately to give all people the same healthcare outcomes.
HealthIL is pleased to invite you to the second session of our Global Collaboration Series, focused on Health Equity. Each of our quarterly collaboration events will involve presentations from relevant technological solutions and startups around a specific topic.
This event will take place on June 15th (IST 11:00 AM) and is intended to highlight the challenges of Health Equity and introduce technological solutions (startups) that can address the challenges.
At the end of the event participating healthcare organizations will be able to schedule deep-dive B2B meetings with those solutions that are most interesting to them, to set the stage for potential future collaboration.
