At the PHSSR 2022 Global Summit, Prof. Syaru Shirley Lin of CAPRI facilitated a panel on “Future-proofing healthcare systems through data and digitalization.” The discussion included leading experts from academia, government, and the private sector exploring different avenues to enhance the resilience of healthcare systems worldwide by using data and technology.
CAPRI joined the World Economic Forum affiliate session “Collaborating to Build Resilient and Sustainable Health Systems” on May 25, 2022, in Davos. From the need for economic prioritization of health infrastructure to the importance and contributions of the Asia Pacific in global supply chains and global resilience, Prof. Syaru Shirley Lin of CAPRI joined with Prof. José Manuel Barroso, Chair of the Board of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; Frans van Houten, Chief Executive Officer of Philips; Leif Johansson, Chair of AstraZeneca; and Dr. Emanuele Capobianco, Chief Strategy and Impact Officer of WHO Foundation, to discuss the complex factors that influence global healthcare preparedness.
The Asia-Pacific Hub of Reform for Resilience Commission (R4R) housed at CAPRI took part in the Healthcare System Resilience Summit at World Expo 2020 in Dubai. R4R co-chairs José Manuel Barroso and Malcolm Turnbull, commissioners Chen Chien-jen and Stan Shih, and APAC Hub advisory board chair Chang-Chuan Chan delivered remarks during the Keynote Session and PHSSR Launch session on January 31, 2022.
