This strategic session is dedicated to developing innovative partnerships between governments, investment firms and the private sector. The Transformational Aid for Development Forum will initiate a discussion with heads of UN agencies, CEOs of investment firms, the WHO, Ministers of Health and representatives from the private sector including pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, IT and investment firms. These stakeholders will answer the question “how do investment vehicles and innovations work together, to deliver better healthcare to millions of people across the globe?”

This one-day strategic forum co-hosted by UNAIDS, ICV, Johnson & Johnson, BD and the Center for Global Health and Diplomacy (GHD) will involve government Ministers who will describe the gaps and challenges they face in their respective countries, CEOs from family offices and investment firms who will discuss in which sectors they intend to invest, and private sector representatives who will discuss where they will implement new technologies, diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. This transactional discussion will connect all segments necessary to scale up innovations and investments to reach vulnerable populations.

The forum will also have an Innovation to Impact Platform (I2I). This platform will display only those innovations, which are piloted and tested with committed investment in the range of US$60 million – US$100 million. The Innovation display will feature targeted innovation demonstration sessions for investors and government ministers. Further, the platform will engage all stakeholders to ensure the creation of lasting partnerships that advance promising opportunities and incorporate policy and national government planning considerations into lasting collaborations.
