Program Spotlight: WHA 2023 Systems Design Workshop

The Global Health Security Fund (GHSF) and Health Innovation Exchange (HIEx) presented a systems design workshop to coincide with the 2023 World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland.

The invitation-only session brought together a hand-selected group of changemakers who have the perspective, influence, and courage to enable a real systemic shift. During the workshop, experienced facilitators provoked attendees to identify the unaddressed gaps and challenges in the existing global health innovation ecosystem, pinpoint opportunities for change, and develop action plans to address them. This unique cohort of innovators, investors, leaders, and experts helped to shape creative design-led strategy for a new collaborative effort in global health innovation.
