VIRTUAL SUMMIT | EDT Timezone
14-15 September, 2020

“When I lie awake thinking of women and their health globally, I remind myself: the world has made a lot of progress in recent years…Too many women are still missing out on the opportunity to get educated, support themselves, and obtain the health services they need, when they need them”

Dr Flavia Bustreo, Assistant Director General for Family, Women’s and Children’s Health through the Life-course, World Health Organization

WHY ATTEND?

Women’s health today is under-served from an innovation and clinical science standpoints with outdated practices and lack of much-needed attention from key players including investors and insurers. It is imperative to develop the eco-system and shift the mindsets and embrace the holistic women-centred approach.

The Women’s Health Innovation Summit (WHI) is THE platform for start-ups, investors, researchers and senior executives in pharma to drive innovation at the convergence of healthcare and technology.

We tackle not only the female prevalent verticals, such as contraception, pregnancy, breast cancer, and fertility, but focus on other verticals including cardiovascular diseases, inconsistency, diabetes, depression and anxiety, sexual health and others.

This event is for strengthening and advancing research, investments and partnerships to ultimately improve the access and quality of healthcare for women worldwide.
