The Center for Asia-Pacific Resilience and Innovation (CAPRI), where the Asia-Pacific Hub is housed, is honored to join the World Economic Forum affiliate session “Collaborating to Build Resilient and Sustainable Health Systems” on May 25 at Davos.
Ongoing international crises continue to expose weaknesses and inequalities across health systems brought to light by the COVID-19 pandemic. While restrictions are lifting in many countries around the world, the evolving geopolitical context and new waves of infections mean that now – more than ever – we need to build on lessons learned from the crisis. Adapting to manage these global events will require unprecedented levels of public-private collaboration to ensure our health systems are sustainable, resilient, and equipped to deal with future shocks in the months and years ahead. As the contours of a new normal emerge, what does a resilient and sustainable future healthcare system look like?
The event is hosted by the Partnership for Health System Sustainability and Resilience (PHSSR) in partnership with AstraZeneca, Philips, KPMG Healthcare, World Economic Forum, and the London School of Economics (LSE). The founder of CAPRI, Prof. Syaru Shirley Lin, will join the discussion with Prof. José Manuel Barroso, Chair of the Board of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, Dr. Emanuele Capobianco, Chief Strategy and Impact Officer at World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, Frans van Houten, CEO of Philips, Leif Johansson, Chair, AstraZeneca, and Dr Anna van Poucke, Global Head of Healthcare at KPMG International.
